Glenisk to host Six Nations pop-up in aid of Peter McVerry Trust

The pop-up is part of Glenisk's #EatLikeThem campaign.


Irish yoghurt brand Glenisk has announced that it will host a one-day pop-up on Monday, February 3rd in Tang on Dawson Street in aid of the Peter McVerry Trust.

Glenisk is the official yoghurt of Irish rugby and ahead of this year's Guinness Six Nations, the brand is inviting the public to #EatLikeThem at Tang and see how a professional rugby player fuels up for the day.

Glenisk has teamed up with the IRFU performance nutrition team to develop a menu of 15 high-protein meals using the Glenisk Irish strained protein range, including protein pancakes, slow-cooked beef, and vegetarian falafel. Each dish will cost between €2.50 and €9, with all of the proceeds from the day going to homeless charity Peter McVerry Trust, Glenisk's charity partner for the event. Great prizes will also be on offer throughout the day, including tickets to see Ireland play Wales on February 8th.

Shane Horgan, former Irish international player and Glenisk ambassador, commented on the event, saying just how important protein is in a professional athlete's diet. 

"As a former rugby player, I understand the importance and value of a healthy and high protein diet; I can also appreciate the struggle to sometimes make meals that are both nutritious and tasty," Shane noted. "The recipes created by Glenisk using their strained protein yoghurt tick both boxes – tasting delicious and providing the right amount of protein to keep players at the top of their game."

The pop-up will be held on Monday, February 3rd in Tang on Dawson Street, after the Irish men's team have hopefully defeated Scotland in their first match.
