Ryanair announced today that they will give away one million free flights (not including taxes and charges, obviously!) following an Irish victory over England in the 6 Nations rugby match scheduled at Croke Park in Dublin this coming Saturday.

The free flights are scheduled to go on sale on Monday, February 26. We’ll make a note to read the sports pages on Sunday.
