Ireland and Argentina in nightlife swap

Irish curator Siobhan O'Dowd

Ireland will receive the best of Argentina’s nightlife culture as part of The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project – in which 14 countries pair up to exchange crates containing the best of their local nightlife.

More than 40,000 people from Northern Ireland and the Republic submitted more than five hundred suggestions for what best characterises nightlife in Ireland– from fashion trends and musical styles to locally inspired cocktails – via Facebook. Smirnoff Irish curator Siobhan O’Dowd selected the ones that best represented Ireland’s vibrant and varied nightlife.

These ingredients will now be packed into a crate for Argentina to experience when the world swaps nights on 27th November.

The Argentinians can look forward to experiencing entertainment by Irish Dance DJ Dave DeValera along with themed food served in the setting of a traditional Irish pub. They’ll also be getting a customised crate courtesy of Irish artist Graphic Artist Shane O’Driscoll.



Ms O’Dowd, says: “I’m incredibly excited to see the best of Irish nightlife come alive for the people of Argentina to enjoy. After weeks of voting and some extraordinary suggestions on what makes Irish nightlife truly unique, the event on November 27th promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience. Argentina, get ready!”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
