The Irish Rugby union team used to play their international home matches at Lansdowne Road in Dublin. However this was closed in 2007, making way for the new international stadium in 2010 the Aviva Stadium. The Irish Rugby union team is unique in a sense that it selects players for the Ireland Rugby team from two separate political national territories the republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. When the country was separated, the IRFU decided to continue with the 4 original provinces, even though 1 of them was now not part of Ireland, but belonged to Northern Ireland.
