We received a lot of positive feedback on our previous Six Nations and FIFA World Cup articles, where we listed the respective kick off times for those living down under. So, we’re doing the same for the upcoming 2015 Rugby World Cup – and we’ll include Canadian/US time too for our friends across the Atlantic.
The dates listed above each groups of matches is based on UK time – you know how time works, surely, so let’s not spend too much time on that aspect as we’ll get lost easily.
NOTE: We’ll be using current UK/Ireland British Summer Time (BST), Perth & Sydney for Australia, New Zealand (NZST) and US/Canada East Coast time.
Techies4TempleStreet is Ireland’s first ever charity event bringing together the technology community and its partners to network and compete in an intellectually challenging treasure trail while making an impact to the lives of the next generation of techies.
On October 2nd, eight members of the CurrencyFair Team took part in the event, which was a treasure-hunt/tech-quiz crossover of sorts. In the end, we finished in 35th place out of 69 teams – that’s top half, whichever way you look at it.
More importantly, we raised just under €700 for Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
As CurrencyFair grows and helps even more people across the globe save money on their overseas bank transfers, we still aim to help the local communities wherever we can get involved.

We’ve compiled a list of 36 groups for expats in Australia from all over the world. Whether you’re Irish, British, German, Italian, Swedish, French, South African or hail from the USA, you’re sure to find one that’s a comfortable fit.
