A fan who claims she was hit by a ball during the All Blacks’ historic loss to Ireland in Dublin last November has taken a personal injury claim against the Ireland Rugby Football Union (IRFU).
The woman lodged a legal action claim against the governing body and the company that operates the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, New Stadium DIC.
It is understood that the ball was kicked into the crowd by a player, however, it is unclear whether or not an All Black was involved.
People viewing sport have to accept there is some level of risk of being hit by a ball. These people are not fans.— EireannachTharLear.com (@eiretharlear) July 28, 2019
The IRFU said this weekend it would be “inappropriate to comment on any ongoing legal matter”.
Another female fan also lodged personal injury legal action for being hit by a ball during Munster’s loss to Saracens in the European Champions Cup in the same stadium in 2017.
