Now this is customer service.

Flying with Ryanair isn't always the most enjoyable experience but for these Ireland football fans going to Lyon to see the team take on France, it was a memorable start to the trip.

With the passionate members of the Green Army seated, the Ryanair pilot - in what he acknowledged as a disobeying of protocol  - came out of the cockpit to address his passengers.

He then launched into a brilliant two-minute pre-flight briefing that featured jokes at the French's expense and plenty of Gary Breen reference,s before finishing with the legendary pilot saying he was ignoring Ryanair's uniform rules to fly the plane in his Ireland jersey.

What a man!
