13 Top Facts About Rugby

Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 15.05.38

One of the very famous types of football, initially played at English public schools (in 18th century), is no other than the famous game itself now; Rugby. The game has evolved through times and the world cups at the interval of 4 years are witnessed to be among the top watched games in the world. The game that started at Rugby School in England is now famous in Ireland, Argentina, Australia, France, Scotland and South Africa along with various other nations dominating in the game.

There are rules pertaining to the game of course, but interestingly there are some facts which are rarely known about Rugby, such as:

1. The origin of Rugby game is known to be at Rugby School in 1823, but the event that made it an actual game was William Webb Ellis catching the ball and running with it during a football game.

2. The Oxford English Dictionary introduced Rugby in the dictionaries in the year 1852 officially.

3. The earliest rugby balls were plum shaped since they were made out of the pig bladder (hence sharing the shape).

4. The Rugby union is popular in Ireland, France, Britain, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa; but the game is played in more than 100 countries now.

5. The peculiar tradition of performing a war dance before the initiation of the rugby match, before the opponents, is carried out with the intention of intimidating the opponents. This is an ancient method and also allows the players to build up their psyche for the game as ferociously as that needed for a war.

6. The winner of the rugby world cup receives Webb Ellis Cup which is named after the inventor of the game.

7. Prior to 19th century, football was not the same sport that it is now played at school and each school had its own set of rules pertaining to the game. After the popularity of inter school matches, the variety of rules settled into Association football and Rugby football.

8. The rugby balls were made more in the spherical shape towards the end of 19th century when rubber was used to make the inner tubes and not the pig bladders.

9. Rugby school requested that the balls be slightly egg shaped to distinguish them from the balls used in football matches. Thus, the oval balls are said to be more suitable for the game.

10. The earlier rugby balls were made from pig bladder and they had to be blown by breath, the reason why people could fall sick and die by blowing balls made with diseased bladder (it is gross too).

11. The tradition of national anthem being sung before the commencement of a sporting event, started with the rugby game when New Zealand danced the ‘Haka’ and Wales responded to that by singing their national anthem in 1905.

12. The first rugby world cup tournament took place in the year 1987 and since then it takes place every four years.

13. The whistle used to kick off a rugby game is the same one first blown by Gil Evans in 1905 for a match between New Zealand and England.

“Beer and Rugby are more or less synonymous”- Chris Laidlaw.

And for that matter, Trinity Bar is the answer to the wish of many rugby fanatics in Dublin, Ireland who aspire to watch the matches on gigantic screens with the best beers in town. Along with that, you could treat yourself to traditional Irish food and enjoy every move of the match along with your friends.

History of Traditional Irish Food

 

Come eat a delicious Guinness pie at Trinity Gastro pub

When it comes to hearty and filing food, Ireland has a rich history. A major part of the land has been dedicated for raising cows, sheep, and crops. The coastline of Ireland is sufficient for addressing the seafood requirements of the country. The abundance of a diverse range of ingredients make for a number of colourful local recipes. For the Irish, it is an honour to serve a meal prepared solely from the ingredients grown locally, which is the reason that they prepare their traditional staples over and over again on festivals and other important occasions. This still continues to be a popular trend in the Éire.

The Famine

The history of traditional Irish food cannot be discussed without mentioning the famine. The major staples before potatoes were introduced in Ireland were peas, beans, and wheat. The potatoes came along in the 16th century and altered the entire structure of the Irish cuisine, dominating some of the major delicacies of the country. It was somewhere in the 18th century that the production of potatoes was affected by a disease and Ireland fell into a serious famine.

The Food

Freshness and quality of ingredients is an aspect of the Irish cuisine that cannot be neglected at any cost. These basic ingredients of any dish are sautéed with herbs and spices. The uniqueness of Irish cuisines is that it lacks sauce and gravy and the basic taste of salt and pepper.

Soups also form a crucial part of the traditional Irish food. They are thick, healthy, and enriched with nutrients. They are usually served on the side of potatoes or seafood. A wide variety of seafood is found in the Irish cuisine, as this piece of land is surrounded by salt water. The popular seafood consumed by the Irish includes lobsters, scallops, salmon, mussels and oysters.

For two centuries now, Irish stew is considered to be the national delicacy of the country. The homemade cheese of Ireland is famous in the whole wide world. Ireland, for almost a century now, has retained the title of an accomplished cheese-maker and is widely known for serving 50 different types of chesses.

The traditional Irish diet is based on the staples like grains (like oats), potatoes and dairy products. On every Irish table, potatoes are served at least once in a day, maybe in the form of scones. Scones are considered to be the specialty of the north and look similar to biscuits and muffins.

The Festivals

The Irish are strong believers of the catholic faith, so they choose not to eat certain foods during the time of Lent. All products coming from animals such as dairies and meat are avoided. On Good Friday, hot cross buns are served with different delicious toppings, which hold spiritual significance. Trinity Bar Venue, for years now has maintained the authentic of the traditional Irish food. If you want to experience Irish history through the medium of food, then Turkish bar venue is your place. Hop on, for

the historical-adventurous ride to the Irish culture. For details visit http://trinitybarvenue.ie/

Surprising Benefits of Beer

new13

Be it any season, the love of beer amalgamated with that of sports is a lethal combination. Trinity Bar, Dublin offers its customers just that; with live music throughout the week each night, along with splendid appetite enticing traditional Irish food, and not to miss out, some of the finest choices of wine and beer.

Beer, which is synonymous to joy and relaxation, has some of the surprising health benefits we are unaware of, such as:

1. Prevention from Kidney Diseases

If you’re afraid you might be prone to developing kidney stones, gulp down some beer; not only to ease your nerves but also to prevent from kidney diseases. The moderate consumption of beer is attributed to this health benefit as the high water content flushes away toxins from the kidneys, and avoids the storage of excess calcium in the kidneys that form stones.

2. Full of Vitamin B

A beer is rich in Vitamin B3, B6 and B9 which makes it a wonderful drink for those in dire need for these vitamins. The yeast is the ingredient in the beer which is rich in vitamin B and helps in cell repair, controls PMS and prevents cancer.

3. Beer manages Blood Pressure

Beer manages blood pressure, especially as compared to wine or other alcoholic beverages which cause the blood pressure to increase. However, to enjoy this benefit, the consumption has to be in moderation.

4. Prevention from Alzheimer’s disease

One of the most surprising benefits of beer is that it protects against the Alzheimer’s disease. It is actually the silicon content of the beer that helps protect the brain of an individual from high amounts of aluminum present in the body which deteriorate brain health leading to the Alzheimer’s disease. Also drinkers of beer are protected different cognitive impairments too.

5. Beer Reduces Stress

One of the significant and evident benefits of beer is that it reduces stress (why else would it be an all time favorite?). Beer is one of the stress busters and it is medically proven so. Not only that, consumption of beer also keeps the heart attacks at bay. Moderate consumption of beer can help reduce anxiety and control symptoms of depression.

6. Fights Against Dandruff

Do you have an itchy and flaky scalp? Maybe it’s not the costly hair treatment you require, pour down a beer bottle on your head in order to get rid of the nasty dandruff flakes. Beer is proven to be one of the anti dandruff agents due to the yeast and vitamin B content present in its ingredients that help shoo away the dandruff. Try it out to enjoy the smooth shine in your locks.

7. It Reduces Cholesterol

If you wish to protect your heart, prevent strokes, and manage cholesterol levels, a good dosage of beer is the key to do so. Beer helps manage cholesterol levels as it contains soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol levels.

Cheers to beer for all the amazing benefits! Grab one and enjoy the taste and the advantages!
