    Bollocks to that. 5 games into the world cup and i won't have had one session for an Ireland game. Drinking is never the primary focus but it's nice to celebrate an occasion.

    that's the problem here

    Irish rugby support in Oct 2011 is 10% fan, 90% bandwagon.

    I have been posting this for years and only getting abuse for it.

    As far as I know, no where will be serving booze as its too early even for the early houses (who start serving at 7)

    Book a cheap Ryanair flight for Saturday morning, don't board it and booze away in the airport :pac:

    Get a short kip Friday evening, go to the offy and buy:
    - a bottle of buckfast
    - a naggin of jagermeister
    - 1 can of redbull
    - a gram of speed (optional, and not from the offy)
    - some cans
    - some wine (for the ladies)

    Go straight out to coppers, with a friend (a good-looking one is best). Have a feed of pints and invite some ladies back to your pre-match party (ladies will keep you feeling alive as you see out the night).

    At 5am get two pint glasses and distribute, in equal measures, between them the buckfast, jagermeister, redbull and speed (optional).

    Go to the woolshed in taxis with your entire party for 6am. I guarantee the cocktail described above will keep you fcuked up until full-time

    After the match go directly to the early house to celebrate.

    Can't have a session for the match? Me bollox. You just need to be creative.

    This is very shortsighted & narrow minded. One of the points of a sport having a Wold Cup is to showcase its talent, with a view to bringing in new viewers & audiences. To introduce this "bandwagon" is not helpful, and misses the point completely.

    Spain is a completely different culture where people generally don't go out until 11pm for their evening meal. The whole city is only starting up at that time and doesn't become quiet until about 6am. It's not comparable at all to having a game at midnight in NZ which is much more similar to ourselves.
    .

    Anyone here been to NZ? Kiwi bed time is a well known phenomenon there. Great country but they wouldn't even be like ourselves, never mind the Spanish. Small towns and even the cities are dead come 8 or 9 o'clock in the evenings.You'd never be able to have a midnight kick off time, even in Auckland or Wellington.

    Yeah I remember being in a small town on the south Island and the local bar closing at 9.30pm!? Then being in a biggish city like Napier and it was likewise a ghost town once it got dark. Weird...

    You'd need a time-machine to catch me on a night out like that. It's been about 5 years, but I was indeed best avoided as I was well known for leading people down the rabbit hole :)

    I'll be watching this match in my sitting room with a mug of coffee. I've got a box of corona in the fridge just in case I get excited though.

    I'll probably spend the entire second half standing or pacing the living room.

    I'm out on Friday night, and have the little 'uns birthday the next morning at an activity thing with his mates, followed by lunch & drinks in our place afterwards with the relatives etc. Going to be a long weekend!! Pity the Aussie v SA game is not the later of the two on Sunday, could have had a bit of a lie in on sunday.

    I would just like to point out to anyone looking to watch Irish rugby and drink at the same time that Leinster V Connacht and Munster V the Ospreys are also on on Saturday evening and both televised so this should give you ample time to watch rugby and drink at the same time on Saturday;)

    I found Auckland fine, to be honest. Not exactly mad but a decent enough crowd in pubs. Queenstown, obviously was busy at all hours. But go to somewhere like Invercargill which is a decent sized town/small city or similar and it's absolutely bizarre. I remember being stuck there for a few days and the last showing at the cinema was at 6pm. I'd walk down the main streets at 7pm and there wouldn't be a soul around.
