A vital stadium upgrade took place at Thomond Park (Ireland) during the off-season as a state-of-the-art LED floodlighting system was installed at the ground.

A Dronan Media video shows drone footage of the new lights installed at Thomond Park which is truly a vision for the eyes.

The ‘Munster Rugby’ stated that the new LED lights in place are more environmental-friendly and are of a higher quality than the previous lighting system which was in place.

The 25,600-capacity Thomond Park is a stadium in Limerick in the Irish province of Munster (Ireland). The stadium is owned by the Irish Rugby Football Union and has Munster Rugby, Shannon RFC and UL Bohemian RFC as tenants.

Munster Rugby is one of the four professional provincial rugby teams from the island of Ireland. They compete in the United Rugby Championship and the European Rugby Champions Cup. The team represents the Irish Rugby Football Union’s (IRFU’s) Munster Branch, which is responsible for rugby union throughout the Irish province of Munster.

The ‘Munster Rugby’ further stated that the lights on the four 35-meter masts in each corner of the ground were retrofitted with LED lights. All lights running across the top of the East and West Stands were also replaced with LED lights.

In total, 188 new LED lights were installed and each light can be controlled individually.

The upgrade will improve the matchday experience at Thomond Park with the new lighting system in place also giving Munster Rugby the capability to include a light show on matchdays.

The project was completed with support from the IRFU and the Sports Capital Grant.

SBE Electrical Engineering Contractors commissioned the floodlighting upgrade.
