Grounds: Kingsholm

The home of Gloucester Rugby will host the Barbarians' clash with Ireland on May 29 2012.

Kingsholm hosted the pair back in 2008 with Ireland taking the spoils and the ground has also witnessed Gloucester's clash with the Wallabies in November 2009. And in the 2009-10 season, the Cherry and White's home hosted the England U20s side.

Barbarians commercial director Mike Burton is pleased to be returning to Kingsholm saying: "We are delighted to be back at this rugby hotbed again."

And his sentiments are echoed by Gloucester's managing director Ken Nottage. "I would like to express our excitement at welcoming the Barbarians and Ireland back to Kingsholm," Nottage said. "The previous time these teams played here in Gloucester, it very much marked the start of a new era here at the club.

"We've now hosted a number of international fixtures here at the stadium but a Barbarians match is always a special one. It would be fantastic to get the tremendous backing of our supporters to illustrate the region's ever growing commitment to supporting the game at all levels."
