Here is another event from Trivia AD at Hoboken’s downtown Irish Bar that hosts a variety of events and caters to a diverse crowd…

So you’re probably thinking, “Could I win an Clueless Trivia or what?”

Find out Monday, May 20 at The Shannon in Hoboken at 8pm!

So, OK, like right now for example? You need to email theshannonhoboken@gmail.com with “Clueless Trivia” in the subject line to make reservations!

Hoboken Hurling - Athletes for Auction 2013

Ladies and gentlemen who enjoy having a good time (or “craic” in Irish) are encouraged to attend this preseason kickoff fundraiser for the Hoboken Guards Hurling Club, a third year sporting & social organization which serves as a gateway to true Irish culture.

Pub Crawl Destinations:

Featured Event:  Live Hurler Auction

Highlighting the event will be Win a Date with a Hurler Auction, to commence in the Shannon at 7:15 pm on April 20th. The single hurlers on the Hoboken Guards, who range in age from 23 to 37, will be auctioned off set to music, each with a gift certificate to a Hoboken or NYC restaurant. The winning bid for each hurler gives the lady the gift certificate…whether she brings our lad or her friend or father is up to her!

  • Cost to attend the event is a $10 bracelet and allows for discounted drink specials (to be announced on our Facebook event page) and food at Mulligans.
  • A three-piece trad session band is included in the event and will follow the sporting tribe to all three bar locations.
  • Attendees can purchase the bracelet at sponsoring bars.

Have a question about this event? Post it to their Facebook page, or email: hobokenhurling@gmail.com. When you sign up to attend the event on Facebook, feel free to invite friends!

“Each of the past two Hoboken Guards Pub Crawl and Hurler Auctions drew more than 100 people apiece, and we hope to have an even larger crowd next Saturday,” said club chairman and co-founder, David Cosgrove. “This is Hoboken’s home team, which plays the best sport on earth, whether Hoboken residents know it or not. Hoboken residents (of age), male and female, are encouraged to come meet out our athletes, learn about this great game which is growing in popularity throughout the United States.”

Fellow co-founder Conor Costigan said the event is critical to the operating of the club, as the funds raised from the auction, wrist bands and raffle typically covers much of the operating costs the Guards for the season. These costs includes league insurance, equipment, field usage/training,  and transportation.

“Most importantly, it’s a great time, a chance to meet new people, and to support your local club,” said Costigan, whose wife Elisha will masterfully MC the auction once again. The two have lived in Hoboken for several years. “GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) clubs thrive in every community in Ireland, and we’ve successfully built our own GAA club here in Hoboken,” added Costigan. “The residents of Hoboken make this event a success so we hope you will join us.”

Training: With the Guards having been granted their first training facility within Hoboken – which is expected to open at 1600 Park – the Hoboken Guards encourage athletes of all stripes to come train with the team on Monday nights at 7 pm starting April 22nd pending availability. The Guards will train Monday nights 7-9 p.m. between the anticipated opening until the end of August at the new facility as they await the finishing of Sinatra Field on the Hudson River (which is expected to be their primary training facility upon its opening in September).

The Hoboken Guards are Recruiting: The Guards are also seeking both male and female new recruits, begin training for the 2013 NYGAA Junior Hurling  Championship season which runs June through the end of August in Manhattan  College, 238th St., Riverdale (Bronx) NY. Check wwww.hobokenhurling.com for the 2013 season  schedule, which will be released shortly.

The group hopes to see you Saturday, April 20th, 4 pm at Willie McBride’s!
