London Irish have confirmed in a statement today that they will be moving back to west London. As long predicted, they will share Brentford FC's new stadium, due to be ready for the start of the 2020/21 season.
That's easy for you to say.

That'll be pretty hard to fill on Championship crowds ;) I'm especially disappointed that this post wasn't actually about a 2000's boy band leading the St. Patrick's day celebrations. Get Louis Walsh out there. I would be grand.

Good luck to them it will surely be better than the place in Reading. 
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Can't imagine Brentfords new stadium will hold more yup than Readings.

Both big enough to get ETs seasonal crowd in

Irish still have a good fan base in their historic home of SW London and, whilst they are unlikely to trouble 10,000 at Brentford it is a decent looking development that is starting to take shape.

When they played at Ealing in 2016 they brought about 2000 fans. There is a very strong residual fan base in West London
