WHEN THE Republic of Ireland play Italy in Euro 2016's 'Group of Death', will the 'boys in green' do what we did to Italy at USA 94, or will it be a harrowing 90 minutes that will make the whole championship one to forget?
Whatever happens, Galwegians will be able to laugh their way through the match on Wednesday June 22, as Après Match Presents…Match Of The Day - Italy V Ireland in Seapoint, Salthill, from 7pm.
The show is an opportunity to see Ireland’s premier pundit satirists provide full match analysis of Ireland v Italy. With a high definition 16ftx9ft screen, surround sound, and a full bar, the match will be accompanied by RTE’s actual commentary, while the Après Match team will provide pre and post-match discussion as well as hilarious half-time entertainment.
Expect spooferism, chancerism, and peacockery. Watch Peter Collins try to control the lads as Giles takes each game on its merits and Chippy struggles with the opinionated Eamo. With reserve team antics from Ronnie, Frank, Didi, Kenny, Vincent Browne, Joan Burton, Mary O'Rourke, George Hook, Paul Durcan, and Bono...nobody will be safe in this comedy showdown.
Tickets are priced €23 including booking fees, on sale on sale Thursday April 28 through OMG Shop Street, Róisín Dubh, and www.roisindubh.net
