Battle ends for 2011...
But Brian O'Driscoll and his team pass on a huge Irish thanks to McMorrissey's Irish Pub & Eatery for all their support during the World Cup build-up and during the games. They came, they fought and they were not disgraced! Other team members including Fergus McFadden, Ronan O'Gara and Paddy Wallace were amazed at the Kiwi's support of the Irish Team, with McMorrissey's gaining special mention. There's always 2015 guys!
Go the Irish!
"St Patrick's Day Rolls around again in Whangarei"
That green Irish day is headed our way again this year, fortunately for party-goers it falls on Saturday 17th March 2012.
This makes it great for those who may wake up on the sunday afterwards feeling like theres a leprechaun with a hammer inside his or her head! McMorrissey's hopes to close off 1/2 of Vine street outside the establishment to allow as much space as possible to enjoy the atmosphere. It's reported that they'll have drinks specials, costume competitions, live traditional Irish music throughout the day, culminating in a party band later that night.
All in all, it's always a great day/night so mark this date on your green calendar now.
| "Guinness & Oyster Festival Been & Gone"
WHANGAREI: McMorrissey's Irish Pub and Eatery in Whangarei hosted the inaugrual "Guinness and Oyster Festival" on Sunday 14th June 2011. Kicking off at 12.00pm approximately 200 oyster lovers converged to the pub and a huge marquee erected on the street especially for the festival.
Dozens of oysters were consumed, hundreds of pints of Guinness and guests enjoyed traditional Irish music, Irish rock and more. One reveller stated "This is great! Guinness, oysters, good tunes on a cold winter's day - what else can one do?" McMorrissey's manager Mag's said it was a great event with plans already underway for celebration number two. - NZPA
"Pratie shortage as McMorrissey’s causes a pratie glut in the market"
Turners and Growers bosses are baffled over the sudden lack of availability of a dietary staple of New Zealanders - the humble potato!
Sources have tracked the problem to well known Whangarei Irish Pub and Eatery McMorrissey's. The pub's most sought after and famous dish "Smashies" have been in such demand since the beginning of winter that Pukekohe potato growers are having difficulty keeping up with demand.
Mags Kent, McMorrissey's manager who hails from Sligo, Ireland is ecstatic that the dish is proving so popular and is quick to reassure spud lovers that McMorrissey's will always source potatoes for the fans! - NZPA
