Donnnybrook

(
Donnybrook (Irish Domhnach Broc, meaning The Sunday Badger) is a district of Dublin, Ireland. It is situated on the southside of the city, in the Dublin 4 postal district, and is home to the Irish state broadcaster RTÉ. It was once the location of Donnybrook Fair, a fair held from the time of King John onwards which was notorious for drunkenness and violent disorder. This gave rise to the word donnybrook, meaning a brawl or fracas. The fair was banned in 1855 and there is little trace of the village's disreputable past; the only reminder of its raucous history is a supermarket called Donnybrook Fair on the main street, from which the name derives. Donnybrook is now one of the most affluent suburbs of Dublin.

Donnybrook is the spiritual home of rugby union in Leinster. The head office of the Irish Rugby Football Union Leinster Branch is located opposite Donnybrook Stadium, where the professional Leinster team play their home games, captained by Brian O'Driscoll. Kiely's pub in Donnybrook village is a traditional social point for rugby fans.
