Everybody who’s been to McGettigan’s knows that we have a wall of fame, where we display memorabilia given to us by our guests.
We’ve just received two more truly outstanding gifts, which will shortly take pride of place in Dubai’s foremost Irish pub!
First, however, it’s time to say thanks to the people who so kindly donated the items. The first one came courtesy of the Ospreys Rugby Team:
The second item, which arrived by post yesterday, is truly unique and stunning. Granted, only people knowledgeable about horse racing will be able to appreciate it fully, but still, having one of these is a real coup:
What you see here is nothing other than the bridle worn by Giant’s Causeway. Giant’s Causeway is quite the horse:
