    Look slike the Supporters & Fan sparty on Saturday night has been cancelled:

    Dear Guest

    It is with regret and frustration that we have to announce the Irish Supporters Party on the 17th Oct at PRYZM Cardiff as cancelled. This is due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. A full refund will be made to the account the ticket was purchased through within the coming days.

    Thank you for your understanding
    HG and all supporters clubs involved.

    Sorry if this has been asked already, but anyone recommend a town to stay in on Friday night near Brecon Beacons? Getting the ferry to Holyhead friday night and want to stop on route somewhere in/near the national park.

    Thanks

    It's a fair schlep from Bermondsey.
    I haven't been, but a mate said it was great craic when he went, though it got too busy towards the end. His son turned up much later and couldn't even get in.
    That said, for most casual rugby supporters over here, the RWC is over so it shouldn't be too rammed.
    I might pop down on the Saturday to watch a game and check it out.

    If you're going to watch the Ireland game in a pub you'll need an Irish one for any kind of atmosphere at 1.00 on a Sunday. Especially since Premier League Wendyball is back this weekend.

    On a side note, check out the Bermondsey Beer Mile on Saturday lunch time whilst you're in that neck of the woods!
    Thanks a lot for the reply!

We're in Bermondsey but don't mind travelling about a bit.

    Fanzone's will be really busy, so get there early.

    If you decide on a pub, I can highly recommend The Sheephaven Bay in Mornington Cresent. Good grub as well.
