Six Nations Rugby Final Round 
So, it’s the final round of the Six Nations Rugby Championship AND it’s St. Patrick’s Day. Clearly, there’s no better place to head to on such an occasion than one of Dubai’s best Irish pubs. Catch all the tackles, tries and tension of the tournament live on the big screens (there are more than 20 plasma-screen TVs dotted around the place – inside and out). Expect some nail-biting moments, as there are some seriously exciting matches on the schedule. On top of all that, McGettigan’s is giving us all the opportunity to win some prizes throughout the day/night (you’ll have to go and find out what they are). Sounds like a great craic.
When: From 12pm, Saturday, March 17
Where: McGettigan’s Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai
