Ex-Lions to light up IRFU banquet

The IRFU Charitable Trust will be holding their annual Rugby Ball -- 'Lions Banquet' on Friday, March 12 (the eve of the Ireland v Wales match) in the Burlington Hotel, starting at 7.15pm.

The event is endorsed by the Irish team and will have several ex-British and Irish Lions in attendance, such as Ollie Campbell and Jack Kyle (both right), Gerald Davis, JPR Williams, Phil Bennett, Gareth Edwards and Mick Galwey.

This event is to raise much-needed funds to support and give independence to 35 paralysed players and their families and to cover their costs and care.

The price has this year been reduced from €1,950 to €1,500 for a table of 10; tables of eight or 12 are also available.

The price per person is €150, single or pairs of seats can be bought.

Telephone enquiries should be made to Mick Quinn at 086 245 2222 or email linda.black@irfu.ie.
