Whilst Gdansk is the venue for the UEFA EURO 2012 Group C match between Spain and the Republic of Ireland on Thursday 14th June, Leopardstown racecourse is the place to be with your mates if you can’t get to Poland.
The big match will be shown on the big screen in the Big Top followed by an un-missable performance by The Original Rude Boys. Fans that prefer a pub-type environment can also watch the match at one of the many bars at the famous racecourse.
Pat Keogh, CEO of Leopardstown racecourse commented “The Big Top is a unique venue to watch the match and Live at Leopardstown is looking forward to supporting the boys in green in what promises to be a fantastic sporting occasion”
Racing kicks off at 4.55pm and the big match will be broadcast live in the Big Top at 7.45pm with Live Concert by the Original Rudeboys commencing at 9.45pm (approximately).
The Original Rudeboys have had an incredible story so far. Breaking out of nowhere as a quartet of cool, their YouTube clips propelled them to cult status among young Irish music fans. Viewing figures on their YouTube channel are now in excess of one million, truly remarkable for a band who didn’t release a record until November last year.
Their debut album This Life went to #3 in the album charts and features the singles ‘Stars In My Eyes’ (peaked at # 2 on iTunes) and ‘Travelling Man’ (went straight to # 1); as well as all new recordings of fan favourites such as ‘Sunny Days’ and ‘Bringing Me Down’. The album was produced and mixed by Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Wretch 32) at his Sticky Studio base in Surrey, England in the latter months of 2011.
Their hit singles have earned them new fans both online and in the media. On the live scene, the band have gone from strength to strength, as they recently enjoyed stellar support slots with The Game, Olly Murs, Sinead O’Connor, Damien Dempsey & 50 Cent. Not to mention their recent sold out tour.
