College Football fans were treated to free beer and pizza at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin for a time on Saturday evening, after the internet went down.
The venue doesn't accept cash, and credit card machines could not connect to Wi-Fi.
It happened during an American football game between Northwestern Wildcats and Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Images of massive queues for the free beer were shared on social media.
