Hi all

Munster Rugby Supporters Club, in conjunction with the Connacht Clan, Irish Rugby Supporters Club, Official Leinster Supporters Club and Ulster Rugby Supporters club are hosting a number of events in the UK for the season that's in it.


Firstly, there is an event before the two big pool games, one on Saturday October 3rd in London and another on Saturday October 10th in Cardiff as well as pre Quarter Final (detais to follow, obviously!!). There will be Q&As with high profile Irish Internationals, food and drink, music from a great band from Limerick called Hermitage Green (check out some of their stuff here:

). Naturally, any live rugby will be shown! Events last till late!

Sounds like a blast of an evening. If yer anything like me, in the run up to a big match the only thing you want to do is talk about the match, read about the match and worry about the match, and what better place to do it that with fellow fans.

For tickets check here: www.tickettailor.com/all-tickets/10672/4d22/

Also, MRSC are running buses from London to Cardiff for the games. They have extended the offer to Connacht Clan members. For details go here: www.mrsc.ie/news/20841.php

Evening again, all. Press release for the event is up!

"The MRSC London Branch, with the support of all four provincial Supporters Clubs and the official IRFU Supporters Club, have organised three Irish RWC Pre-Match Parties in London and Cardiff this October with Irish band Hermitage Green as the headline act for each.

Ireland play Italy in the Olympic Stadium in London on Sunday October 4th, France in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on October 11th and will hopefully qualify to play a Quarter Final on the 17th or 18th of October also in the Millennium Stadium. On the eve of these massive and historical sporting fixtures Hermitage Green will headline three official Irish Supporters Pre-Match parties!!

Each of the three nights promise to deliver a fantastic fusion of sport, music and banter. The running order will vary slightly between events given the unpredictable nature of the quarter final weekend, however in general, a nights entertainment will include an insightful Q&A with high profile ex Irish Internationals, a screening of the main match on that night, followed by a live performance by Hermitage Green. Then, to round off a fantastic evening, a DJ will assist guests to dance the night away until the early hours.

Headliners Hermitage Green who recently signed to Sony, having released their summer hit "Jenny" and in September their new single "Quicksand", never disappoint and are sure to deliver a lively and energetic set. The band, which includes Irish capped centre Barry Murphy, have previously performed privately for the Irish Rugby team and are extremely popular at home and Internationally on the Summer Festival circuit.

The Q&A panels will feature three distinguished former Irish Internationals from Munster, Leinster and Ulster along with a well known MC. Details to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

For the very first time in the history of rugby these events are bringing together the Official IRFU, Munster, Leinster, Connacht and Ulster supporters clubs. Given such support these events promise to be three spectacular nights not to be missed!! Tickets are expected to sell very fast given the thousands of Irish Supporters at home and abroad who will be making the trip to the UK allied to the large diaspora based there so be sure to snap yours up early.

Tickets can be purchased from tiny.cc/GreenWCparties "

Anyone planning on heading if they happen to be over? I think my flights/travel don't work out, sadly!
