The quirky ecclesiastical venue of ‘The Church’, played host to the latest Guinness Live & Rising, celebrating the unique contribution of pubs across Ireland.
The evening was hosted by Danny O’Reilly frontman of The Coronas who oversaw a panel discussion with Jen Payne, DJ and producer, Hermitage Green’s Barry Murphy and sports storyteller and presenter Christina Mahon.
Guinness Live & Rising is a new initiative celebrating Irish pubs across the country, showcasing the role they play as homes and hosts of incredible experiences in music, food, sport and the arts.
Guinness partnered with Irish singer-songwriter for this unique event to curate the ultimate match day watch party, bringing together rugby fans with some for a vibrant experience with live performances, rugby chats with a twist, as well as a few surprises along the way.
The Coronas frontman Danny O’Reilly said “I’m delighted to partner with Guinness to curate this Guinness Live & Rising event in The Church, Dublin, celebrating all things rugby and what it means to so many people. What better place to host this event than the pub? Irish pubs are known for showcasing emerging talent in culture and have played a big part in kickstarting my music career.
The pub is also a place where I love to get together with friends and family to watch my favourite team play or discover new music. We’ve an amazing line up on the night and I’m excited to bring you all along for my ultimate match day watch party.”
The event was attended by some familiar faces such as Evan Doherty, Zoe Hargan and Danielle Borthwick.
