Not local but interesting. Can you imagine any vendor doing the same in the United States.

Vendor applauds staff for serving free beer at Big Ten game in Dublin – Washington Post

The stadium’s vendor, Levy UK + Ireland, blamed the situation on a technical issue with its payment provider that prevented card transactions from being processed for two hours.

“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this caused customers,” a Levy spokesman said in a statement, “and would like to thank our employees at Aviva Stadium for the spirit they showed in keeping everything going.”

Word quickly spread in the first half and before long lines began to grow at concession stands. It wasn’t just beer that was handed out, but everything available, including food.
The Omaha World-Herald reported at least one fan coming away with seven beers and many others opting for a more manageable four. French fries — or chips, as they are called on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean — proved a popular item, as did hot dogs.
“Nothing is free in Ireland — but this is!” exclaimed a Dublin native attending the game, per the newspaper.
