The modern Munster rugby phenomenon emerged from cultural and structural changes that occurred in Irish rugby in the wake of the game's transition to professionalism and resultant commercialisation in the mid-1990s. The on-field success of the team, particularly in the European Rugby Cup, saw Munster quickly garner mass popular support and symbols such as flags, songs and the team's home ground in Limerick provided cultural cohesion and a shared sense of provincial identity.
