Upcoming Events

Dragon with HeartsMerlins Rest Pub Gatherings
– 30 April 2017

We’ll be gathering from 3-6 pm at Merlins Rest Pub on this coming Sunday – 30 April – for conversation, eats, drinks, and general merriment. Please join us in meeting up with new and long-time friends with Welsh interests and Celtic connections.  The staff  reserve tables for us, so when you arrive let them know you’re looking for the St. David’s group.  Street parking is available and there is a nearby lot – check out the Merlins page for details.

Rugby, Anyone?
– 4 February to 18 March

In February Kieran’s Irish Pub will again be broadcasting the 6 Nations Rugby matches running between 4th February and 18th March.  Wales open in play at Italy on 5 February (a Sunday), and play England on 11 February (a Saturday), with 3 additional scheduled matches to follow until  18 March.

We’ll update this spot when we know Kieran’s schedule for opening doors (all early morning matches in converting from GMT to Minnesota time).

In the meanwhile, if you’re interested in attending as part of a group, let Ilene know at

Want to brush up or learn a bit about rugby?  Try these three resources:

  1. Check out our Rugby guides from last year’s St. David’s Day Banquet.
  2. A lovely narrated video animation is a nice, quick setting out of the basics.
  3. And, the Stereophonics’ As Long as We Beat the English for some mood / tone setting, and to compensate for my having to include an England-oriented video animation link.
