The event will be hosted by Bernard Jackman who will discuss his sporting career and the challenges he’s faced during his time on the field

The Irish Rugby World Cup bid may have petered out in disappointing fashion last month, but one player who can always hold his head up high for his service over the last two decades is out-half Johnny Sexton.

Rugby fans in the region will be delighted to know that the Leinster man will be making a guest appearance for an unparalleled sporting experience for a Grand Slam Dinner event at McGettigan’s Factory the Palm.

Organised by INXTREMIS, this highly-anticipated will give guests the opportunity to hear from the newly retired professional, who will be hosted by Bernard Jackman, discussing his sporting career, covering his ups and downs, his many triumphs, and the challenges he’s faced over his long career.

Guests will also enjoy an expansive buffet and an inclusive drinks package, with an after-party organised at McGettigan’s Factory the Palm.

Although Johnny will no doubt be reeling from the disappointment of the recent defeat to New Zealand, organisers hope it will be smiles all around when he takes to the event this Saturday night.

What better way to begin your retirement plans than with a visit to Dubai?
