There are several things you can do this St Patrick’s Day that doesn’t involve the hustle and bustle of Temple Bar and surrounds…

All Ireland Club Finals

St Patrick’s Day is also the day when four clubs in Ireland will take to GAA Headquarters to be crowned All Ireland Club Hurling or Football Champions. Tickets are reasonable and it’s always a great day out for the everyone.

Ireland v England – House Gathering
