Connacht are in search of a first cometitive win in England for nearly a decade. Could this be the one.
When: Saturday October 20th, 15:00

Tickets are available here. The Clan will be seated in sesction W03 so grab a ticket for there.
Manchester is the obvious airport to go to, though some are going via East Midlands as you can fly direct from Knock. Birmingham is not too far away either by train. This one is doable as a day trip if you leave early.
Plenty of accommodation options in Manchester but it is fairly heavily booked on that weekend. There is no particularly popular location for the Clan, we are fairly scattered.
There was a suggestion to visit The Brook in Sale - right beside Brooklands station on the Metrolink tram line for anyone around on Friday night.
On Saturday, we can gather beforehand at Castle in the Air, which is near the Trafford Centre. There are free buses from there to the ground from 13.30 on, and there are various bars including the legendary Sharquee at the ground.
Match Day Transport
Sharks run shuttle buses from the Trafford Centre. You can get there by public transport from various locations.
Things to see
Plenty to see in Manchester. The Museum of Science and Industry is worth a look if you like industrial technology stuff and have a look at the Lowry if you like art.
