Spioen Kop Wine Dinner
Green Acres is pleased to invite you to the launch of the Spioenkop range of wines from Elgin Valley, South Africa.
To celebrate this occasion, we are delighted to welcome Anfield and England Legend, Phil Neal, to Wexford for a wonderful dinner paired with the wines of the Spioenkop Estate.
Also attending will be Wexford’s own Michelle O’Neill, recent World Cup Final Assistant Referee. Michelle was also part of the all-female team of referees for Liverpool recent triumph over Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup Final.
The evening will include a Questions & Answers session hosted by South East Radio’s Alan Corcoran.
The Battle of Spion Kop was fought about 38 km west-south-west of Ladysmith on the hilltop of Spioenkop along the Tugela River, Natal in South Africa in 1900. It was fought between the South African Republic and the Orange Free State on the one hand and British forces during the Second Boer War campaign to relieve Ladysmith. It resulted in a Boer victory.
The battle, collectively with its location at a hill, has gone down in British football lore as the namesake of a common British term for single-tier terraces and/or stands at football stadia, most famously Anfields “Kop”.
