Pat Falvey was the guest speaker at a pre-match dinner at Thomond Park for the Heineken Cup Munster VS Castres Olympique. 350 supporters were entertained with an inspiring presentation based on the importance of supporters and teams working together to create success.
Pat's colourful presentation focused on the importance of the team and the unsung heroes of the supporters in driving the playing team forward. The Munster team has one of the most loyal group of supporters in the world.
The importance of this match was highlighted by Denis Kelleher, Munster Branch IRFU. “The game is particularly important as a win will take Munster into the quarter final of the Heineken Cup. Castres were a very hard team to overcome in round 2 over in France, with one of the season's most spectacular wins with a very late Ronan O Gara drop goal needed to claim victory.”
The atmosphere was electrifying as the teams played to a packed out stadium for Munster to go on to win convincingly by 26 points to 10 points.
