Watch the All Blacks take on South Africa LIVE on the big screen...


The All Blacks take on South Africa in Johannesburg on Saturday 4 October. The NZIA has arranged for the game to be shown on the big screen at The Sugar Club on Lower Leeson Street (just off St Stephens Green). Kick off is 4pm (Irish time) and doors open at 3pm.

Entry is free, all are welcome (regardless of who you are cheering for!). Get a group together or come alone, it's a chance to watch it amongst old (and new) friends.

There will be specials on the day; 6 Miller for €20, match cocktails €6 and pizza served throughout the game at €7/€8 and €9. There is also a full bar on site.

For those heading to the Leinster v Munster game at Aviva Stadium later that day (KO for that is 6.30pm), the stadium is just a short taxi ride away so you could even make it a double header...

If you have any further questions about the day please contact us by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We hope to see you there!




Kiwi In Clonakilty

Alison Wickham is a Kiwi (and now naturalised Irish person) living in Co Cork since 1998.  She has self published a book in 2013 about the lives of 14 women that she interviewed in her Irish hometown of Clonakilty.  Alison describes it as a "not-for-profit" project to show her appreciation for the town that she has lived in for the last 16 years.  Any profits will go to a museum project focussing on women.

New Zealand Driver's Licence Finally recognised in Ireland

After years of lobbying and false dawns we received news in the last week that the wait is over - Ireland and New Zealand have mutually agreed to exchange driving licences! 


Irish sparrows wannabe Tuis?

A new species of orange-headed bird found in Ireland?

Over the past few weeks BirdWatch Ireland HQ has been receiving lots of phone calls and emails about strange birds with bright orange heads that have been visiting gardens around Ireland.  They tend to flock with Starlings and House Sparrows and can be quite numerous in some areas, though they can’t be found in any field guides.
