Why don't Ireland play at Ravenhill?

    The Irish rugby teams represents two political entities on the island of Ireland. Why do they only ever play in Dublin, to the neglect of our northern brethern?

    I suppose because of capacity, and the money that can be made on ticket sales.
    Its about the same size as the RDS now, but its only in the last dozen years its become any think like a professional sports grounds.
    Ireland dont play at the RDS or the Sportsgrounds either.

    Ireland have barely played there since the 1950s though. It's odd that a team would neglect one of the places it supposedly represents.
