Redevelopment of Thomond Park, Limerick

Thomond Park, the historic home of Munster rugby, has undergone major redevelopment (Fig 1) which will see its capacity rise to 25 756. This paper describes the design and construction of the new stand and terrace structures. Particular emphasis is given to the development of the architectural and engineering concepts, the wind tunnel testing and dynamic analysis undertaken during detailed design, and the fabrication and erection of the two 150m span 'rainbow' roof trusses.
