Competition Closed: Win Tickets to Ireland vs Argentina Courtesy of the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project

**Competition Closed – Congrats to Fr Dick Byrne :)**

And now for something completely different, as they say. Here at Culch we enjoying making our impressed face when we hear about a good party and we’re making it right now because the guys in the thinking caps at Smirnoff have come up with the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project. They picked 14 countries to pair up, exchange crates containing ‘the best of their local nightlife’ and have a massive party.  Ireland paired up with lovely Argentina – they sent us a crate, we sent them a crate – and excitingly for you, the hour of that party is at hand.

They’ve sent us Argentinean goodies including food and drink and their top DJ Elio Riso. The unpack and the craic will be happening in the Wright Venue in Swords on November 27th (tickets here for €15) so if you’re up for a bit of a culture clash, get practising your Latin dance moves.

But wait, there’s more! Did you see something about rugby tickets in the post title? You sure did. It just so happens that on Sunday November 28th, Ireland and Argentina will be clashing for a second time – this time the Ireland vs Argentina Autumn International rugby match at the Aviva Stadium – and the nice folk at Smirnoff in conjunction with Culch.ie are offering you the chance to win a pair of tickets to the game. For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment below telling us what you would have put in the crate we sent to Argentina. You can be different, interesting or funny – we don’t mind, just get your entries in by Tuesday November 23rd at 5pm and we’ll pick the lucky winner. Please remember, alcohol is for grown ups so you must be over 18 to enter the competition.

    brian cowan – he has done enough damage

    Harcourt St. vibe… a mix of POD and Coppers. Some hipsters, a d4 or two, a few civil servants, mix together with some cheesy tunes we love to hate think Maniac 2000, Joyce Country Ceili Band, Galway Girl etc.
    Throw in some current Irish dj acts like the Japanese Popstars, iRate Sound Systems, Bitches With Wolves, add a dash of red lemonade to taste and a 4am pitstop for taco chips in Abrakebra before onward to the after sesh.

  5. Aline says:

    The hangover cure : a fry for the morning after !

  6. Fiona says:

    I’d send them a nice fillet steak, prove once and for all ours is better than theirs!

  7. Louise says:

    I would like to put the entire Irish Government along with the IMF People and gladly ship them off to Argentina along with all the crap Rugby Referees !! 😉

  8. Trevor Nicholson says:

    No point in turning on the news these days, we know it’s only bad news. Keep it off and live life to the max !

  9. Gabriela Andino says:

    Gooooo my great Pumas!!, i would love to win this, and being able to encourage my fellas!!

  10. Gabriela Andino says:

    i could be there, like that i can visit my family soon!

  11. sandra gough says:

    Michael Flately Jean Bulter and Riverdance….

  12. doug barnes says:

    About 500 bankers for starters! They could set up shop on the Malvinas!

  13. Emma says:

    I would put the whole of the FF government in there, making sure they were well packed and sent on their way with no return address!

  14. ROBrien says:

    A pint of Guinness….

  15. orl says:

    Doom and gloom, the senator windows ad, our pasty skin.

  16. jonathan martin says:

    George hook cos the c**t makes me sick. Hopefully hes give the food poisoning.

  17. seanear1ey says:

    I would have put nothing about the god damn recession in the crate. We don’t need to drag the rest of the world down with us.

    I’d have put in a Crystal Swing album. The world need to experience Crystal Swing not just Ireland and the US. I reckon with some pencil moustaches and sumbreros they could be quite popular in South America. ‘He drinks tequila, She talks dirty in Spanish, or Portugese, or whatever they speak in Argentina’.

    I’d have put in a bottle of our very own brand of moonshine, Poitín to knock the socks off them and get the party started!

    I’d have stuck in some DVDs of great Irish films like Intermission, Perrier’s Bounty, A Film with Me in It and In Bruges. To show what fantastic work can come from Irish cinema.

    And lastly I’d have stuck in some green wigs, leprechaun outfits and some Guinness cut outs of Keith Woods’ face from a few years back. Because when we give them a schooling at the Aviva they’ll have no choice but to follow our boys in green!

  18. antoinette collins says:

    Myself…I could do with a holiday!!

  19. Ronan says:

    Brilliant entry Sean. Love the Crystal Swing reference. I’d like to lock them up in a crate for very different reasons though! 😀

  20. Claire says:

    I’d put myself, escape the doom and gloom around here. Might also pick up a few tips from them about how to deal with the IMF!

  21. Niall says:

    Ah jeez give the Argentinians something nice for chrissakes. They gave us Evita! I’d send them Enya in response. I’m sure they’d make her a queen or something.

  22. Ciara OReilly says:

    Please pick me 🙂

  23. PatB says:

    I`d send over a copy of “The Grand Slam” dvd …some of the free cheese we`re all getting…daithi o`se to make loads of Argentian babies who would qualify to play for Ireland and I was going to say a bottle of Smirnoff but I`m sure they wouldn`t like an empty one.

  24. emer says:

    I’d put Wagner in the crate, get him off our screens!!

    Please please pick me – such a great prize 🙂

  25. Gerry says:

    I would put in my head cold- not that I want to make the people in Argentina sick, I just want to get rid of it before the big match (which hopefully I will be watching in Aviva Stadium!) And for something nice I would put in a box of Broderick’s bars which I discovered after watching the Apprentice. They deserve to be a global treat!

  26. Adrian o connor says:

    Brian Cowen and Brian Lenehan and cheese !

  27. Father Dick Byrne says:

    I’d send a shed load of Father Ted DVDs, but here is the catch we tell them it’s a documentary.

  28. Mark says:

    A letter asking for €90bn…… and some cheese

  29. Mark says:

    Myself so I can get myself out of this country!

  30. Adam says:

    A good dose of banter!! Make the crate move and turn it into a ‘crate crawl’. That way Argentina gets the authentic Irish Pub Crawl!!

  31. Jonathon says:

    A plate of bacon n’ cabbage with a bottle of Chef tomato sauce cos you can’t have b n’ c without lashings of it

  32. Brid says:

    I’d have jumped into the crate myself – a proper Irish girl 😀

  33. Philip says:

    I would send Fianna Fail and the Greens:)
