Would you like to spend Valentine’s night with these three gentlemen and their friends?

We have one pair of tickets  – yes a PAIR  – to see Leinster this Friday night at the RDS, Ballsbridge, Dublin when they host the Newport Gwent Dragons.

Included will be a blue-themed ‘best dressed ladies’ competition and a roving ‘kiss cam’ with ‘spot prizes’ on offer.

It doesn’t get more romantic, in fairness.

No cash, favours, ‘six packs’, etc were given for this post other than the prize.

 

Update:

Runners up:

Monkeyman: “Please send a case of McGargles to my daughters granny Eileen (mother in law) because she will be unbearable on christmas day without a fiery brew to cancel out her bitter but well rounded ‘charm’.”

J: “Please send a case of McGargles to my better half, because he really is that. He does the all the early morning shifts and bedtime routine with our cracked in the head toddler, plus he’ll need something to numb the pain while he’s been used as a toddler climbing frame.”

FergusMc: “Please send a case of McGargles to Carrie from Homeland because she is a complete gimp. I’m glad I got that off my chest.”

Thirsty:Please send a case of McGargles to my sister Sarah because she’ll be home to Dublin from New York next week for her wedding and part of our ploy to get herself and her husband to be to move back permanently is to convince them that Irish beer really can compete with the offering in the US!”

Winner:

Dangerfield:Please send a case of McGargles to my brother’s husband because he used to drink swill but since they moved to Canada he’s moved onto craft beers so he needs something locally brewed to keep his thirst quenched while he’s home for the holliers and dealing with his gaggle of crazy sisters.”

Thanks all

For software?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Would you like to impress your small business-owning boss (should you have one)?

Prepare to snivel.

We have two – yes, just TWO – 1 year licenses to Microsoft Office 365 Small Business Premium, worth €150 EACH to give way as part of the #getitdoneIRL  project, a Microsoft Ireland Small Businesses initiative.

Darragh writes:

It has all the features and programmes of Office, with the benefit of it being ‘in the cloud’, so it’s available wherever there is an internet. There’s also business-class email, a public website, web conferencing, and document sharing – all easy to manage, without IT expertise.

Perfect for anyone that has an old (or dodgy) copy of Office and would like an upgrade, sez Karl.
