Hi there,

on March 15 the Scottisch League Cup Final will take place between Celtic FC and Rangers FC.
The Dutch Celtic Supporters Club, the Lowland Lions CSC, want to organise a meeting around this Old Firm match for its members.
We'd love to held that meeting in St. James Gate.
But to do so we want to make sure St. James Gate is showing Celtic-Rangers that day, because many pubs prefer to show the England vs France Six Nations rugby match instead.

So please let me know if St. James Gate is showing Celtic-Rangers on March 15.

On behalf of the Dutch CSC,

Giovanni Hartogs

SO ME FUNNY JOKES!!! ( All by Tommy Cooper)

I went to see a friend with her new baby last night, she asked me if I
wanted to wind it.
I thought that was a bit harsh, so I just gave it a Dead-Leg
Two Aerials meet on a roof - fall in love - get married The ceremony
was rubbish but the Reception was Brilliant.
Man goes to the docs, with a strawberry growing out of his head.
Doc says, 'I'll give you some cream to put on it.'
'Doc, I can't stop singing the green green grass of home.'
'That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome.'
'Is it common?'
'It's not unusual.'
A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet.
'My dog's cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him?'
'Well,' says the vet, 'let's have a look at him'
So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.
Finally, he says, 'I'm going to have to put him down.'
'What? Because he's cross-eyed? '
'No, because he's really heavy'
'Doctor, I can't pronounce my F's, T's and H's.'
'Well you can't say fairer than that then'
Two elephants walk off a cliff...... boom boom!
So I went to the dentist.
He said 'Say Aaah.'
I said 'Why?'
He said 'My dog's died.'
So I got home, and the phone was ringing. I picked it up, and said
'Who's speaking please?'
And a voice said 'You are.'
So I rang up my local swimming baths.
I said 'Is that the local swimming baths?'
He said 'It depends where you're calling from.'
So I rang up a local building firm, I said 'I want a skip outside my
He said 'I'm not stopping you.'
Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5
people in my family, so it must be one of them.
It's either my mum or my dad.
Or my older brother Colin.
Or my younger brother Ho-Cha-Chu.

But I think it's Colin.

So I was in my car, and I was driving along, and my boss rang up, and
he said 'You've been promoted.'
And I swerved.
And then he rang up a second time and said 'You've been promoted
And I swerved again.
He rang up a third time and said 'You're managing director.'
And I went into a tree.
And a policeman came up and said
'What happened to you?'
And I said 'I careered off the road.'
Now, most dentists' chairs go up and down, don't they?
The one I was in went back and forwards.
I thought 'This is unusual'. And the dentist said to me, 'Mr Cooper,
get out of the filing cabinet.'
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me 'Can you give
me a lift?'

I said 'Sure, you look great, the world's your oyster, go for it.'
Two cannibals eating a clown. One says to the other 'Does this taste
funny to you?'
Police arrested two kids yesterday , one was drinking battery acid,
and the other was eating fireworks.

They charged one and let the other one off.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today .
They left a little note on the windscreen; it said 'Parking Fine.'
So that was nice.
A man walked into the doctors,
The doctor said 'I haven't seen you in a long time'
The man replied, 'I know I've been ill'
A man walked into the doctors, he said 'I've hurt my arm in several
The doctor said, 'well don't go to those places'
I had a ploughman's lunch the other day.
He wasn't very happy.
I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't
find any.
I bought some HP sauce the other day.
It's costing me 6p a month for the next 2 years.
Two blondes walk into a'd think at least one of
them would have seen it.
Phone answering machine message -
'...If you want to buy the hash key...'

I went to the butchers the other day and I bet him 50 quid that he
couldn't reach the meat off the top shelf.
He said, 'No, the steaks are too high.'
My friend drowned in a bowl of muesli.
A strong currant pulled him in.
A man came round in hospital after a serious accident.
He shouted, 'Doctor, doctor, I can't feel my legs!'
The doctor replied, 'I know you can't, I've cut your arms off'.
I went to a seafood disco last week and pulled a mussel.
Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly.
They lit a fire in the craft. It sank, proving once and for all that
you can't have your kayak and heat it.
Our ice cream man was found lying on the floor of his van covered with
hundreds and thousands.
Police say that he topped himself.
Two fat blokes in a pub, one says to the other 'Your round.'
The other one says 'So are you, you fat slob!'

Great service, good beer, beautiful barmaids. Just back from the dam. Gloria thanks for looking after us the past 2 days. My mate is still out looking for the diamond ring he promised you. ha ha.

And Sarah...what more can I say. Giving us the show that you never knew you were doing. Walking around with your skirt tucked into your leggings and then being so embarrassed you would not come outside or serve us for 2 hours. Bless you cutie,

Promise we will come see you both soon, thanks again ladies.

I was fortunate enough to enjoy 9 months living and working in Galway on the west coast of Ireland, and spending time in the St James reminds me of the great fun which the Irish are so rightly famous for.

If you are visiting Amsterdam, make sure to drop in!

Cheers, Ashley

To all those fellow drinkers and staff who were witness to what can only be described as the Amsterdam Riverdance that took place on Saturday 15th March by some of the finest dancing leprechauns the world has ever seen!! It was a perfect display of co-ordination, balance and skill! It was vivid that those fine leprechauns put in a lot of hard work and practise to crown off a wonderful and graceful example of what real Irish dancing is all about!

I have received a statement on behalf of the five leprechauns and they would like to thank you all for joining them in their one off performance and hope you enjoyed the entertainment! They would also like to thank the Staff of St. James Gate for keeping the Guinness flowing and not chucking them out of the bar!!!

If dogs could talk...

A man was driving around Dublin when he saw a sign in the front of a house
reading "Talking Dog For Sale. Fascinated, he rang the bell, and the
owner told him the dog was in the backyard. The man found his way to the
backyard and, there was a fine black Labrador sitting there.
"You talk?" he asked.

"Yes," the Lab replied. "So, what's the story?" The Labrador looked up and said, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was still pretty young, not quite a puppy. I wanted to help the government, so I told the Garda about my gift, and in no time at all they
had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and
world leaders, because no one dreamed that a dog would be eavesdropping.
I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running.
"But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting
any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the
airport to do some undercover security wandering near suspicious
characters and obviously listening in. I uncovered some incredible
dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a load of
puppies, and now I'm just retired".

The man was amazed. He went back into the house and asked the owner how
much he wanted for the dog. "Ten euros," the man said.
"Ten euros? This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so

"Because he's a liar. He never did any of that s**te"
