Hate football? 16 pubs in Cork and Dublin NOT showing the World Cup

Emer McLysaght

From tomorrow, the World Cup will be everywhere you turn.

It will be on your tellies, in your newspapers, in your pubs and right here on TheScore.ie.

What if you want a quiet drink without someone roaring at Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo

Graphic designer and self confessed ‘not a big football fan’ Alan Ruane has taken it upon himself to track down some watering holes in Dublin and Cork who either don’t have tellies, or won’t have them tuned in to the matches.

Ruane says he “made a lot of calls” to pubs around both cities and that while this isn’t a definitive list, it provides a secure number of boltholes for those more interested in chat than chanting.

He also told DailyEdge.ie that there may be even more lurking out there:

Some great pubs were on the fence or just didn’t know yet, for example The Long Hall in London, so I just left them out to be on the safe side.



What to watch on TV tonight: Wednesday
