Clontarf to entertain the barbarians

CLONTARF will entertain The Barbarians as part of the week-long Millennium celebrations to mark the Battle of Clontarf next April.

"We have been on it for six-to-eight months and we are absolutely thrilled that The Barbarians have accepted our invitation," Clontarf team manager Pat McHale told The Herald.

"It is far too early to say who they will enlist to wear the famous black-and-white jersey. It could be a team of top-class internationals or a cast from the English Premiership and French Top 14. We simply don't know."
