Back in 2008, the Irish comfortably won the previous encounter 39-14. But since then the BaaBaas have gone into the bear pit of a packed Thomond Park in Limerick and gained revenge. That was in 2010 and they followed it up last year with last gasp victories against both England and Wales.
The Barbarians' summer tour this May promises to be an even greater challenge with high powered assignments at Twickenham, Kingsholm and the Millennium Stadium in the space of seven days.
The early signs are that the BaaBaas are assembling a star studded squad equal to the task.
Joining Tindall and Qera will be another local hero of recent times, Iain Balshaw. If nothing else the former Lions' full-back, with five previous games for the Barbarians under his belt, will be able to show his old friends the ropes and explain the tourists' unique way of doing things.
There'll be no shortage of other big names to give them support when the games get under way.
Already making the headlines was the announcement last month that Welsh wonder wing Shane Williams intends making the Barbarians' week his swansong as a player.
"I've played for the Barbarians once before. When I was offered the chance to play this summer I had no hesitation in accepting the honour.
"The Barbarians is a wonderful institution and sums up everything that is good about the game of rugby. To have a chance to finish by playing for them again and also against Wales in Cardiff is an incredible opportunity and will bring my career full circle."
Joining Williams, Balshaw and the Gloucester pair are a bevy of big names including Frenchman Cedric Heymans, England's Lewis Moody and Wales' record cap-holder Stephen Jones, plus another try hungry wing, the All Black Joe Rokocoko.
More superstars from near and far are due to be announced shortly.
The mind boggles at the pace and fire power at the disposal of the Barbarians' coach for the tour, John Kirwan.
It's appropriate with Kirwan himself being another world class wing of legendary status in his playing days with 67 tries in 97 test and tour matches for the All Blacks.
The recent coach of Italy and Japan has left no one in doubt of his enthusiasm for what lies in store at the end of the season,
"As a boy I got up in the early hours of the morning to watch the All Blacks against the Barbarians when Gareth Edwards scored that awesome try in 1973.
"It inspired me to want to be the best and it was my dream as a player to be a Barbarian. So the honour of being invited to coach them will be one I will remember forever.
"The Barbarians are putting together a very strong squad and our goal on this great tour against England, Ireland and Wales will be to inspire young people to play with flair, ability and passion."
Keeping a close eye on proceedings will be another great favourite of the Shed from yesteryear and now a busy Barbarian committeeman, Mike Burton.
Looking ahead, he said this week:
"This particular summer tour kicks off a very big twelve months for the Barbarians, culminating in a ground-breaking match against the British and Irish Lions in Hong Kong on June 1st 2013.
"But first we have to deliver the goods in front of my old friends at Kingsholm. It should be quite an occasion!"
