A collection of 20 photos are on exhibition in St Stephen's Green in Dublin until the end of the July. Despite Ireland failing to win a match, the pictures show ecstatic fans clambering on trams and carrying each other aloft. Irish fans are also seen embracing the opposition supporters. Among those visiting the exhibition yesterday were two women who made the journey the other way around and swapped their home in Poznan for life in Ireland. Friends Kasia Korcz and Agata Glapa agreed that their city had never before seen such a green invasion. "The atmosphere was amazing, totally amazing," said Kasia, who has been living in Dublin for the last five years. Photos: Collins
