St Patrick's Week Festivities 2018
Pint Pulling Challenge
Friday March 16th 2018 - 8.00pm
This year we continue the battle of the pint pullers! Each year a few lucky participants get taught the art of pulling a decent pint of Guinness. A team of esteemed judges (and seriously experienced Guinness tasters) test the pints pulled and choose a winner. With music by Mal and Tony.
Always mighty craic!
