London pub landlord donates RWC tickets to charity


Pat Logue, who runs the Sheephaven Bay pub in Camden, has donated two sold out rugby tickets to charity.

The two tickets are for Ireland’s show down with France in this year’s Rugby World Cup which takes place at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on October 11 and include overnight accomodation.

They are going towards a prize draw for the Aisling Project who have been providing assistance to long term Irish migrants for over 20 years, offering support to those who have become isolated and estranged from their homeland through supported breaks in Ireland, linking up with families and friends and through help with health, welfare and dependency issues.

The draw features many other prizes, including a week’s holiday in Ireland courtesy of Trident Holiday Homes and Irish Ferries, four tickets to the Cheltenham November Race Meeting courtesy of Avondale Construction, VIP tickets to attend and meet the acts at the Aisling comedy benefit in November and tickets to The Commitments at the Palace Theatre in the West End.

Raffle tickets are £2 each, or three for £5 and can be bought at a number of supporting pubs and sports clubs.

Tickets can also be bought at The Quays on Holloway Road, the Claddagh Ring in Jendon, The Three Wishes in Harrow, Rudds Bar in Blackfriars, The Faltering Fullback in Finsbury Park, Camden’s Sheephaven Bay and the Blythe Hill Tavern in Forest Hill.

Munster Rugby Supporters Club, Holloway Gaels and Eire Og have already gotten involved but any others that wish to lend their support can contact Alex McDonnell at or call 0207 485 7030.

The draw is due to take place on September 12 and the winners will be notified shortly afterwards.
