Does anybody have a clue what this "painting" is supposed to say, or do you all think just like me, what a dumb thing on the nose of an aircraft.

This special livery relates to the Rugby Heineken Cup. Munster (Ireland) won it this year.

It’s not stupid or dumb. Its gamesmanship! Two Irish rugby teams, one called Munster the other Leinster. Munster beat Leinster in the Heineken European Cup semi-finals and then beat French team Biarritz in the final. No prizes for guising which team Ryanair support. Ryanair’s two founders are both from Munster (Tipperary and Waterford) although Michael O’Leary (Ryanair CEO) is from Leinster. The “Brown Tomas” bag is a reference to an exclusive department store in Dublin (capital of Leinster as well as Ireland) and suggests that Leinster are just a bunch of “girls” who like shopping!

It's to do with the recent rugby game between irish sides Leinster & Munster, MOL clearly opting to support the winners!

The noseart is meant to depict an Irish rugby player I believe. And it's meant to show the rivalry in rugby.

It is rugby related, so as you come from Germany you probably won't know about it as its not big with you guys! :)

Actually, the rationale behind the image was that the particular weekend of a Munster -V- Leinster rugby match, there was a Brown Thomas sale on in Dublin and the joke was that all the leinster supporters would be at the brown thomas sale as opposed to the game. It's purported that Munster fans are the more dedicated fans, but not in my opinion. I'd have to say that being a Leinster man myself! :)
