Just had this in the inbox, might be of interest to any of you going to Dublin this weekend:
Fans get to question international legends in free event Former Scotland scrum half Andy Nicol heads up a list of rugby legends speaking at the Arlington Hotel, Dublin, ahead of Scotland’s game with Ireland at Croke Park on March 20th. Scotland fans will get the chance to question three rugby legends about their experiences and predictions for the game at a free event held in the heart of Dublin before the RBS Six Nations fixture. The Arlington Hotel on O’Connell Bridge will turn into the Scots fans headquarters during the build up to the game at the event which will also include Irish and British Lions legends Mick Galway and Ciaran Fitzgerald. As well as serious questions, the legends will join in with the banter and discuss some of their other memorable moments on the pitch. The forum kick’s off from 11:00am on match day, allowing fans enough time to take part in the event well in advance of the kick off time. Louis Fitzgerald, Owner of the hotel, says: “The Arlington O’Connell is normally a hive of activity before the big Six Nation’s games and we wanted to give something back to the fans who visit us year on year by creating this event. “Although I’ll be supporting the green jersey, it’s always a fantastic atmosphere in Dublin on match days with both sets of fans enjoying the craic.” The Arlington Hotel is centrally located; a minute’s walk from the famous Temple Bar district where many Irish fans without tickets to the match will be watching the game. The three star hotel offers traditional Irish hospitality to its guests and visitors to its bar and restaurant.
