    Isn't the Marquis of Granby run by yer man Richard who used
    to run the Lyric nearby?

    You should be OK as long as there isn't a Man U game on [img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]

        O'Neills, 
        Great Queens Street
        Feck off - the London Ulster fans have already grabbed it as
        our venue of choice [img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]

        Ulster game is on the Friday so you should be ok.

          Kieran says he wants to clear out the riff-raff[img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]Its only a trial venue for this week at this stage.


          For anyone who is interested:
          Sat 18<SUP>th</SUP> September (trial 3<SUP>rd</SUP> venue for home game Vs O’s) Kick off 20:00


          The venue for this week, as has been previously advised, is O'Neill's, 40 Great Queent Street, London WC2B 5AA (in Holborn) This location is again very central and not far from last weeks venue. The nearest tubes are: Holborn (270m), Covent Garden (300m), Leicester Square (600m), Tottenham Court Road (650m), Temple (690m)


          How to find it:



          Turn right out of Covent Garden tube down Long Acre. Cross onto Great Queen Street. Out of Holborn tube, cross over Kingsway onto Great Queen Street (look to your left as you exit the station).

            Kieran's a good guy - he has always shown Ulster games for us on at least one screen, even when there has been a big football game on at the same time.

            Only problem with that O'Neills is the U-shaped and narrow layout so the viewing angles aren't great on some of the screens if there is a lot of people.

            If you are lucky enough to get a good seat, they usually do table service so you don't even need to get up to get a drink.

              Would also be intersted but the City is about an hour away for me.


              I tend to go to Ganleys in Morden and for me its topnotch (an oasis) and Conor the Bar Manager get it right everytime!


              One massive large screen, 6 very big flat screens and two mini screens. - 4 Sky feeds. Munster Rugy / GAA and Irish sports come first but never a prob as the pub is set up with speaker/volume areas that don't clash.


              I have no connection to Ganleys except been going there for a pint of the black stuff now for over 8 years

                Do you have a venue for watching the Munster Leinster match this evening (or where it will be shown in London).

                If so can you post it on the site.

                  Hi Mike


                  The weekly update pasted below : (triple digit crowd expected)








                  Hi All,

                  Game day venue for tomorrow reminder
                  Game day 5 (away to Leinster) trial venue confirmed

                  Sat 2nd October (trial 5th venue for away game Vs Leinster) kick-off 19:30
                  The venue for this week has been confirmed as the Sheephaven Bay in Camden (2 Mornington Street, London NW17QD). The nearest tubes are: Mornington Crescent (.2miles), Camden Town (0.3miles) and Euston Square (0.6miles). Nearest rail stations: Euston (0.5 miles), Camden Road (0.5miles) and St Pancras (0.8 miles).

                  How to find it:As you exit Mornington crescent tube, look across the road to the right and you will see a road going slightly uphill. This is Mornington Crescent road. About 20 metres up Mornington crescent road, you come to Arlington road. Take a right here and walk 50 metres. Take the first left. This is Mornington street. The Sheephaven Bay is clearly seen on your right.

                  If you can make it Saturday night, or are maybe going to attend, can you please let me know by return email so that we can reserve a relevant size section in the bar?

                  *This will be our second visit to this venue as we feel this weekend is perfect to answer the remaining questions we have on the venue and also to get a larger amount of members attend. To re-cap, we visited this venue on our 1st trial week which was a smaller match on the pitch, and indeed, our own database was in a formative stage and we had 30+ attendees. The survey feedback received was very positive on the venue, but it was a much smaller sample than subsequent trials and thus we would hope to gauge feedback from a larger group given our increased size and the higher profile opposition

                    Is attending said venue open to all, or will the venue be booked out?
