I 100% agree. But it has been assessed and believe it or not a sell out in Thomond Park is worth a lot more to IRFU than PUC. There was a study done and after you factor in rent, loss of corporate package and bars income outside you earn in region of €300k-400K less. That was before you consider any other items. For European Semi you also would need to put in seats in the terraces of PUC as there is a requirement for 25k seats. So renting these and putting them in as well as the above mentioned plus the IRFU would loose out on rent. It does sound good and I was 100% in favour of it (and used to be one of the "IRFU only want it all in Dublin") but when you do the maths which I'm surprised Donal didn't mention you'd be aiming to create a carnival atmosphere at a substantial loss.
