Mayor of McGettigan’s – The Final!

Almost exactly a year ago, McGettigan’s Irish Pub launched the “Mayor of McGettigan’s” promotion and, since then a new mayor was crowned every month. Last night, Tommy O’Regan was crowned the 12th Mayor of McGettigan’s. He’ll reign until St. Patrick’s Day.

All mayors won an all expenses paid meal and drinks night out for them and their other half at the stunning Cavendish Restaurant at the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers. Not only that, but they also had the honour of receiving one free drink, every day for one month at McGettigan’s. THEN if that wasn’t good enough, they were entered into a draw at the end of the year to win a trip for two to Dublin for St. Patrick’s week 2012, including return direct flights to Dublin and a stay at the Regency Hotel in the capital of Ireland!

Want to know which of the 12 mayors wins the trip to Dublin? Come down to McGettigan’s during St. Patrick’s week and find out!
