    Foot.ie! Watching Live eL in London

    Anyone here know of any pubs in London that show live eL games?

    I know of one pub in Ilford with an Irish sky card but don't think they have ever shown eL games.

    It would be great to 'designate' a pub that would show games, get a few people in to watch the games!

    The matches will all be live on rte.ie and viewable worldwide.

    Buy cans and stay at home

    I suggest you approach one of them and see if they'll become an "official" pub for el fans. If you can guarentee a crowd they'll show the games no problem. A grea chance for exiles to get together IMO

    There's a few around that will show the games if you ask them in-advance,as there's not much else on at that time on a Friday.

    McGoverns in Kilburn is a favourite of the Derry City fans. Even has a Derry man as a barman.

    There's some place in Ealing as well.

    Basically - find a few Irish pubs near you, find out if they show RTE and then see if they'll put it on for you. Alternatively head to McGoverns

    EL In London

    I do know that McGoverns in Cricklewood has RTE and if you ask Austin the Govn'r he normally will oblige. That is if you sup a few pints while you are watching the game.

    It's in Kilburn !!! Right out of Kilburn tube, 2 mins up the road on that side, next to Kilburn Bar and Kitchen place .

    There is also a McGoverns in Cricklewood and it is bigger that the one in Kilburn OK. I know I work there on the weekends.

    Is there ? Feck that's handy to know, as the one in Kilburn is tiny......!

    Difficult to get to from the tube I imagine though.

    While RTE and TG4 games will be available online, it may not be the case for TV3 and Setanta Ieeland games.

    So it would be nice to have a place where a few fans of all clubs could arrange to meet up!

    For Setanta matches, head to the Porterhouse in Covent Garden. They don't have the terrestrial channels though. Again - ring in advance to avoid the proverbial disappointment.
