Heineken® is turning Sinnotts Bar Green all the way

Heineken® is enlisting rugby stars to get working at some of the country’s best-loved local pubs on match day as they go Green all the way

Dublin’s iconic Sinnotts Bar may look a little bit different on match day this year as Heineken® teams up with stars of Irish rugby to turn pubs Green all the way for big games this September. The country’s most iconic and colourfully named pubs will be transformed and renamed as the nation gets behind the boys in green this rugby season.

Sinnotts Bar in Dublin, Galway’s Busker Browne’s, Drogheda’s Grey Goose and Sinnott’s Stephen’s Green, will be transformed Green all the way in September as Ireland battles it out in France. With it’s a big job transforming these iconic pubs green, so with that, Heineken® has enlisted the help of a squad of rugby stars to lend a helping hand in going Green all the way.

Repro Free: 07/09/2023 Heineken® go Green all the way this rugby season, and enlist the help of Irish rugby stars Devin Toner and Simon Zebo as they take over and transform iconic pubs all around the country making them Green all the way for each match day this rugby season. Irish rugby stars will be visiting pubs all around the country on game days, pulling pints and meeting fans all in support of the Irish team battling it out in France.

International rugby star and Cork native Simon Zebo and rugby legend Devin Toner will be joined alongside a troop of rugby stars past and present including Peter Stringer, Donncha O’Callaghan, Sean O’Brien, Ian Madigan, Andrew Conway and Dave Kearney to name but a few. They will be heading to beloved pubs around the country, where they will be pulling pints, working the door and having the craic with fans in the pub on match days.  Fans can grab a pint pulled by barman for the day Devin Toner or Peter Stringer, as well as plenty of other surprise and delight moments. All of this is taking place in these four iconic venues at ‘Green Hour’,  the hour before the big game kicks off.

Speaking on the Green all the way campaign, international rugby star Simon Zebo said: “Seeing Heineken® turn the pubs Green all the way for the big games just adds to the excitement of the tournament and gives the lads over in France a great sense of support. There will be plenty of craic in the pubs on matchday – I can’t wait to see a few of the lads try their hand behind the bar!”

Former Leinster and Ireland star Devin Toner said: “I’m delighted to be teaming up with Heineken® for their ‘Green all the way campaign’. There’ll be a few confused locals coming down to the pub on matchday seeing me behind the bar and the sign above their favourite pub changed – hopefully they won’t give me much stick if my pints aren’t up to standard! You just can’t beat the atmosphere in the pub on match day, everyone is there for the same reason – to get behind the lads and have a bit of craic supporting green.”

Heineken® invites rugby fans to join them and go Green all the way in support. Watch the match in one of the participating pubs and enjoy the fun of ‘Green Hour’ with the Heineken®  team of rugby stars.
