Win tickets to our special Ireland v All Blacks event with Ronan O'Gara

In partnership with Aldi, one of rugby’s greats will preview the game at Liberty Hall in Dublin on Wednesday.

THE REIGNING RUGBY world champions are in town this week. 

Ireland face the mighty All Blacks in a highly-anticipated Test at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday evening, and the current Six Nations title-holders will be looking to repeat their historic victory when the sides met at Soldier Field in 2016. 

Kiwi-born Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt will use the November internationals, and this game in particular, as a benchmark ahead of next year’s World Cup, and it’s sure to be an enthralling contest. 


In association with Aldi, we’ll host a very special preview night in Dublin tomorrow night.

Irish Examiner columnist Ronan O’Gara will be joined on stage by Murray Kinsella and Gavan Casey to discuss the Ireland and Munster legend’s playing days, what he has learned in New Zealand as assistant coach of Crusaders and how he feels the game is likely to pan out. 

And we’ll have a pair of tickets to the much-anticipated match to give away on the night, thanks to Aldi. 

Due to enormous demand, we’ve moved to Liberty Hall Theatre on Eden Quay and, although tickets have just about sold out, we’re offering readers the chance to win a pair.

All you have to do is answer this simple question: 

Who is the current head coach of New Zealand?

UPDATE: Conor Doyle has won the two tickets after answering correctly. New Zealand’s head coach is Steve Hansen.
