Ireland v England Auction

Fancy going to Ireland v England on the 1st March?  Watching the only two unbeaten sides left in the championship?See Ireland gain revenge for last year and take another step towards.... whisper it.... another Grand Slam? 

How about warming up for the game with some pre-match hospitality in the exclusive Sandymount Hotel, which is right alongside the Aviva Stadium?

Then you can do all of this with a very innovative fundraising auction from Railway.

One of our members has kindly donated two Category 1 tickets and pre-match hospitality, which includes a pre-match drinks reception, a four-course lunch with wine, the official match programme, and a ref link radio.

kyranbrackenAND…. you will be hosted by our guest speaker, the delectable Kyran Bracken, at his table for lunch!

Born in Skerries, Kyran is the only Irishman who has a World Cup winners medal and is uniquely positoned to give a perspective on the Ireland England match.  A former England captain, Kyran played with Bristol and Saracens, has 51 caps for England and toured with the Lions in 1997.  After he retired, he won ITV's Dancing On Ice competition with the highest ever score in the history of the competition.
