Here are the highlights from #MunsterRace day 1

Tractors, tri-corner sandwiches and a bit of Titanic were all on show as Munster players pressed the flesh today.

THE INAUGURAL MUNSTER Race is nearing the halfway point as the various teams turn their attention towards finding a bed for the night.

Tomorrow, they’ll hit the road to Youghal again. Hopefully, there’ll be slightly better weather to take the overriding grey hue of the pictures they tweet.

Whatever the climate, though, they seem to be enjoying themselves so far.
