The last trip to Brive was particularly memorable, with a warm welcome show to the Clan by the Brive Supporters's Club, Kop Cabiste, and by Man of the Match Thomas Laranjeira, who bought us plenty of comenpsatory beverages to atone for all those points he scored against us.

There are direct flights to Bordeaux with Aer Lingus.
The Clan are running a bus from the airport to Brive to meet the flights Friday-Sunday.
It will be priced at €50 return. If we fill the bus we should have enough to fund the pre-match meal as well.
Seats for the bus are available in the Travel section of the Connacht Clan Shop.
Lots of options around town. A good few are in the Ibis Brive Centre. There are others closer to the centre of town, e.g. Le Coq D'Or, Hotel L'Andrea, Citotel Le Chapon Fin
We have been in touch with their supporters' club, Kop Cabiste.
Their bar is Le Relais du Pilou, a few minutes walk from the stadium. They are organising a meal for us before the match.
