Rí Rá will open its doors at 6am for a St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast and pint of Guinness for those jumpers who want to warm up after the plunge along with a raffle and auction.

Celebrations continue for the final day of the Six Nations Rugby Championship. Watch the biggest game of the tournament as Ireland take on England at 10:45am.
