Pubs Set for Business as Usual Ahead of Bumper Sport Weekend

Publicans can breathe a sigh of relief as revellers return to bars once again this weekend after the "dry January" spell.

Although the windy weather still may keep some indoors the prospect of an opening weekend of the Six Nations and travelling Welsh fans will entice many to venture to their local to see Ireland defend their title at 3pm Sunday.

Adding to what could be a busy Sunday for some pubs will be a marquee Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester united at 4pm. And, for some select bars across the country, it will be an extra late night as the Superbowl kicks off at 11:30pm Irish time and will stretch into the small hours.
