Coppers has a new HQ!

Coppers has a new HQ!

Last week Jack promised you all that he had big news coming in the near future. Well, it starts here and now. One of the main things that Jack intends to use this blog for, is to give you lot an insight to behind the scenes at Copper Face Jacks. When JTL got a little bit excited when last week, this was one of the reasons why…   Jack has got himself a brand spanking new office! Well, in truth, it isn’t all just for Jack. This is the new home of Copper Face Jacks Marketing team, who will be bringing you and Coppers to the next level. Word has it that here’s a strong Cavan connection within the office, all will be revealed on that front very soon folks. What else can Jack share with you this week? Well your weekends might just be getting a little longer. What Jack means by this, is that everybody’s favorite weekend DJ, will now be playing Mondays! Dave Lyons, otherwise known as DJ Shiny Head, has sacrificed his Monday night’s by the fire side watching Fair City, whilst dabbing Miracle Grow on his head following another failed hair transplant. Ah we love you really Dave, ya big legend!  In other news, apparently we’re going to be hotter than Tenerife this week, so all you United fans out there need to get into our beer garden on Wednesday night for the Europa League Final. Sun, beer and football. What more could you want? A place in the Champions League maybe? 😉 There’s still so much Jack is dying to reveal. Stay tuned,...
Nurses went free and Coppers went mad!

Nurses went free and Coppers went mad!

First and foremost, we need to talk about last night. It was earlier on in the week, and it had been brought to Jack’s attention that Friday would be International Nurses Day. I’m sure all you Coppers regulars will know that we’ve had a strong affiliation with nurses ever since our doors opened back in 1995. So, Jack decided it was only fair to give something back. ‘Nurses Go Free’ was the tagline and boy did the word spread like the Peanut Butter Jack put on his toast this morning. CFJ’s social media was hopping all day with the news that nurses would be allowed free entry all night, with the help of some form of I.D to prove it. One girl did ask if sore feet and bags under eyes counted as a valid form of I.D. Her comment kind of summed up what the whole idea was about. The nurses of this country are some of the best in the world and they work tirelessly around the clock to care for others. What Jack thought to be a small, but nonetheless kind act, seemed to make so many people happy (The lads weren’t complaining either 😉 ). Nurses came out in their hundred’s for a well deserved night out, and it genuinely was one of the best night’s of the year so far! Nurses know how to let their hair down it would seem! Friday madness aside, Jack The Lad has even more exciting news for you. It is a very good time to be a Coppers fan. There are some huge plans in the pipeline for...
What a weekend!

What a weekend!

Ahoy Hoy, as old man Burns would say. Summer (also commonly referred to as ‘study weather’) has officially arrived and boy did we have it good this week. Since Jack last sat on his bony arse to inform you of some glorious Coppers’ insights, there was the small matter of the long weekend. For many reasons, the weekend was one of the busiest Bank Holiday’s since records began. I would love to tell you that Friday was the calm before the storm, but the shifting wall seen it’s fair amount of action on that particular night. When Jack woke up Saturday morning there was a pep in his already fairly hasty step. Saturday was the night of the hugely anticipated ‘Joshua Vs Klitschko’ fight. Beforehand, our main bar was as packed as the six O’clock Luas to Bridie’s Glen, for Katie Taylor’s flawless performance. The event was being live streamed on our social media, just in case you didn’t know. 😉 By the time ‘AJ Vs WK’ ding-dinged, Coppers experienced an English takeover, and of course by this stage of the night everyone was suddenly a boxing expert. A chorus of “Watch the left jab, Joshua” and “Kltschko will tire, he’s 41” echoed. Well, Jack has never seen Coppers go so silent as when Joshua hit the floor, a bit like Jack does after a few too many scoops. Joshua came through in the end, in what was a savage night’s craic. One Jack really enjoyed. Off went the TV’s, on came the tunes. Speaking of tunes, Bruno Mars was playing a few of those over the weekend and...
