Special Rugby Wine Deal for Afloat.ie Readers!

7th October 2011
Special Rugby Wine Deal for Afloat.ie Readers!

Big sailing (and rugby) supporters 'On the Grapevine' Wines in Dalkey Co. Dublin have been letting the early morning kick offs go to their heads. To celebrate Ireland's quarter final placing in the World Cup tomorrow, proprietor Gabriel Cooney has knocked 20% off all Red wine in his well stocked Dalkey shop if Ireland win. 20% of all White wine if the unthinkable happens. He's going one further for Afloat readers and adding a further 5% discount if you mention this post.

Here's hoping for a 'Red Wine' hangover!

Here's the deal from Gabriel himself:

"These early morning starts are really ruining my weekend lie-ins these days, but here we are in the quarter final of the World Cup, faced with an impressive-looking Wales team. I have always had a problematic relationship with Wales because, as a child in Wexford, I had to put up with the Welsh version of Channel 4 – S4C. So while the rest of you were enjoying edgy programming and interesting documentaries, we had to put up with Ivor the Engine re-runs. In Welsh.

Also, all that singing kind of annoys me.

Anyway, how you fashion a wine offer for a country that doesn't make wine? I put this to some of the best marketing minds in the country – Pam, Carol and my friend, Michael - and we have decided to forget geography and go by the colour of the jerseys – red and, er, green".

The offer is as follows:

If Ireland win : 20% off all RED Wine

If Wales win : 20% off all WHITE Wine

If Ireland win by more than 15 points (not going to happen, so I'm told) : 20% off ALL WINE

The offer is for ONE DAY ONLY, SATURDAY, OCT 8th. No other discounts apply, etc etc....

Something for everyone – see you on Saturday. COME ON IRELAND! And don't forget to mention Afloat for an extra 5%!

On the Grapevine, 21 St. Patrick's Road, Dalkey, Tel 00 353 1 2353054

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
