Ireland's remaining 2020 Six Nations fixture dates revealed

THE FIXTURE dates for Ireland's remaining Six Nations matches have been confirmed.

When will Ireland's games be?

Ireland's home tie against Italy will take place on Saturday, October 24, while their away trip to France will take place the following weekend on Halloween night.

Almost four rounds of fixtures of the tournament had been completed back in February and March before the coronavirus crisis put a halt to proceedings.

The Six Nations was postponed until October but the exact dates for the four outstanding ties have just been revealed.

Can I buy tickets?

Tickets for the original Ireland matches were cancelled and will be refunded, but it isn't clear as of yet whether or not supporters will allowed to attend any of the games.

"When we have greater clarity on the potential attendance at future games in line with government guidelines, we will announce these details," said IRFU Commercial Director Padraig Power.

Tournament recap/table

For those of us with memories like goldfish, Ireland's tournament began with two wins over Scotland and Wales, but they were far from convincing. A third round defeat to England left Andy Farrell's men in fourth spot with two fixtures remaining.

Winning the tournament is still possinle for Ireland providing they take maximum points from their remaining two games, but realistically they would need England to either drop points or fail to score any bonus points in their final fixture against Italy.
