Any Villains in Amsterdam for the match? I am at a 50th birthday weekend and need to find somewhere to watch it...

Irish Lions meet in Buskers on the Ball on fleet street in temple bar I believe. The downside is that it is in temple bar, which is basically broad street with more tourists.

Thanks Ger, I can put up with that for a couple of hours. (Temple Bar that is, not Broad Street).

It's not bad in there at all. You might get given a card to get discounted drinks and there's free grub at half time (well, there was when we went). The chap who runs it, Philip is a jolly decent bloke. Have a good day.

Nice one. Valentines/wifey’s birthday trip, Friday to Monday, plenty of time for romance, paying homage to 1916, and football. It’s fine though, she’s Villa as as well.

I never make it because of busy family stuff when I'm over there but my cousin in Dublin has tried a few times to get me tickets to Kilmainham. Apparently it's a brilliant tour - if you can take the anti English rhetoric.

Kilmainham tour is really good, from memory I didn't think the rhetoric was particularly anti-English, it was telling it as it was without dramatics.

Excellent is the word I'd use for the tour of Kilmainham jail.  A must-do for any visitor to Dublin if they have the time, you could be in there all day.  Also, value for money*

* I don't know how much it is at present but it was €4 when we went, I'm sure it would be double that now.

Is Kilmainham where they filmed "The Italian Job" gaol scene with Noel Coward?

Three best tours I've ever done have been in jails. Kilmainham, Crumlin Road and Shrewsbury (this one was the best by a mile).  The execution cell at Shrewsbury is also painted claret and blue in honour of the midlands finest

They're not as much fun when they're filled with inmates, I can tell you that.

Is it still ok to call them "badduns ?"

As ever, it depends who’s listening ;)
