  • Notre Dame vs Navy Football Game in Dublin @ Aviva Stadium (The Aer Lingus College Football Class).  Quoted from IrishCentral “The 2020 game is not about bringing the drama and pageantry of the gridiron to an Irish audience,” “It’s about our two great nations engaging together. As well as the game, there will be academic conferences, cultural events, business opportunities... and you can bet there will be social activities, too.  “We’re hoping Notre Dame fans will get to experience Ireland, to love it. And in the future, they will see Ireland as their second home. And if they’re in business and they want to open a European office, Dublin will be their natural choice, or Cork or Galway or Belfast.”  Something for you to think about, maybe a summer holiday!
