Ireland will play Switzerland in a friendly next March 25, which incidentally is also Good Friday. But you guessed that from the headline of course so I'll get on with my point.
At first the idea of having a match on a day all pubs in Dublin are closed seems like a dreadful idea but as Today FM's political correspondent, Gavan Reilly, pointed out to Matt Cooper when he mentioned this fact on air, the Aviva are actually allowed sell alcohol on Good Friday.
@cooper_m But if UEFA govern the game (unlikely, as a friendly) they have a separate no-alcohol policy at any of their fixtures...

Those cunning bastards.
So who's for a pint in the Aviva?
