Rugby legend Ollie Campbell will make an exclusive appearance in Burgess Department Store on Tuesday 20th November between 5pm and 6.30pm.

‘A walking legend with a right boot of silk’ Ollie will be in the store to celebrate the arrival of Eden Park menswear to Burgess. Official formal wear brand for the IRFU, Eden Park is a wardrobe staple for rugby fans and customers at the event can enjoy 20% off the label throughout the evening. Ollie Campbell’s exploits for the Irish team in the late 1970s and 80s are legendary. From the massive 60 points he scored during the 1979 Lions Tour, to scoring all 21 points against Scotland in 1982 to win the Triple Crown for Ireland for the first time since 1949, he was a force to be reckoned with.

There will be individual meet and greet opportunities, autograph signing and the chance to be photographed with one of the all-time greats of Irish rugby. To top it all off customers will be in with a chance to win free tickets to some upcoming international matches at the Aviva Stadium.
