Ireland to play in Limerick
Thomond Park in Limerick is set to host the Ireland football team for two international friendlies over the next 12 months.
FAI officials are close to finalising an agreement to play at the Limerick venue on the 12 August.
And FAI chief Executive John Delaney is also in talks with Munster Rugby about playing a second match at the stadium next spring.
'The Aviva Stadium is where we'll play all our internationals going forward but there's a window of opportunity now to play some games in Thomond Park,' said Delaney.
'It's a wonderful facility and will also facilitate some of our supporters in the Munster and Connacht areas.'
