A bird's eye view from the terrace: The Cat and the uni-cycle

by Yvonne Kelly, 2012-09-05

Only one away trip can lead to an illuminating two word text two days later of the class of 'Flashback. Unicycle.'. Yes folks it was the annual Leinsterfans expedition to Llanelli and all the usual insanity that involves.

Season Preview: A bird's eye view from the terrace: Pre-season 2012/2013

by Yvonne Kelly, 2012-08-30

As the Summer draws to a close, Leinster supporters have finished preseason and are eyeing the road ahead. Can we make a home final in Lansdowne road? Can we match Toulouse's four stars and be the first team to do three HEC in a row? Or can we have our best season yet, throw the monkey off our backs and do the double?

A bird's eye view from the terrace: Ask not what your province can do for you...

by Yvonne Kelly, 2010-12-15

After the visit of Clermont to the RDS earlier this year those who travelled to Stade Marcel Michelin last weekend knew they were in for an experience, but I doubt any Leinster fan expected just how intense that atmosphere would be. We have all admired those areas in away grounds from where the noise and atmosphere seems to emanate - the supporters stand in Toulouse, the promenade in Ulster and the shed in Gloucester to name but a few. But in rugby grounds the world over I have never seen anything quite like what we witnessed last Sunday.

A bird's eye view from the terrace: The thing about Llanelli

by Yvonne Kelly, 2010-12-02

Llanelli is always the best supported away trip for Leinster in the Magners league outside of the inter-pros. At this stage it has almost reached cult status. The funny thing about this though is that the origin of some of the recent travelling support lies at a match when Leinster weren't playing! The Heineken cup 2005/2006 was the second year in a row that Leinster were drawn in the same pool as Bath. Having done all the touristy things in Bath on a long weekend the previous season, a group of fans decided to get the train down to Llanelli on the Saturday to watch them take on Trevor Brennan's Toulouse.
