Sport is a big part of the Irish pub experience so please join us for the fifth and final round of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations Rugby Championship on this afternoon as Ireland takes on France.
We'll watch the match live, from Stade de France outside Paris, in one of New York's best and biggest Irish sports pubs. Jack Doyle's opened in the fall of 2012 and is named after an Irish-born baseball star from the turn of the 20th century.
The spacious two-story midtown bar features 16 big-screen TVs and 36 beers on tap. Breakfast, brunch and lunch options will all be available.
The 6 Nations is an annual round-robin tournament, matching the top 6 European rugby squads: Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy. Each team gets 2 points for a win and 1 for a draw. The team with the most points at the end of the round-robin wins the championship.
Ireland has dominated Scotland and defending-champion Wales in its first two matches while France beat England in a thriller in its opener so this match could have championship implications.
If you're a big rugby fan, the bar will also be showing the first two matches of the day: Italy vs. England at 8:30 a.m. and Wales vs. Scotland at 10:45 a.m. We will plan to be there just for Ireland-France, which starts at 1 p.m. New York time.
Whenever you arrive there will be a $20 cover, collected by Premier Sports, which has exclusive TV rights to the matches in the US. The bar is not able to waive this fee.
Should be a lot of fun and a great way to kick off the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day. Hope you can join us!
