Ireland's RBS 6 Nations collision with Scotland promises to be a fitting championship send-off for Lansdowne Road.
The clash is the last RBS 6 Nations match before the oldest rugby ground in the world begins redevelopment next year with Croke Park set to be Ireland's temporary new home.
As Ireland and Scotland are both still in the title hunt, the famous Dublin setting looks set to stage a thrilling contest which has taken on the look of a semi-final.
Along with England, Eddie O'Sullivan's men are the only team with RBS 6 Nations destiny still in their own hands with victory over Scotland setting up a potential championship decider against the world champions at Twickenham on March 18.
Even if France beat England in Paris on Sunday, Ireland will remain the only side who know exactly what they must do to win as their fixture at Twickenham is the last of the tournament.
But in contrast to previous seasons, victory over Scotland in Dublin is no forgone conclusion with Frank Hadden's rejuvenated team proving the revelation of the RBS 6 Nations.
Aggressive defending has been their trademark so far so Ireland will have to work hard for their tries and show a more clinical touch than in recent games.
England and France have both succumbed to Scotland's revival and with Italy the final opponents for Jason White and co, Murrayfield could yet prove the destination of the 2006 title.
But the Scots have not won in Dublin for eight years and the feeling that Ireland are on the brink of delivering a special performance is difficult to ignore.
