Poster boys of Poznan transformed into St Stephen's Green Army
MEMORIES of those hedonistic weeks in Poznan may be a little hazy now, clouded by late nights, raucous sing-songs and lashings of beer.
However, enlisted members of Ireland's Green Army can check out the highlights of their Euro 2012 Polish campaign in a new outdoor photographic exhibition.
Continuing his visit to Dublin, Poznan mayor Ryszard Grobelny yesterday unveiled the collection of 20 photos which will be on exhibition in St Stephen's Green in Dublin until the end of the month.
For those who lived the experiences, it is a nostalgic walk in the park -- a time when hope still lived on.
For those who were left behind, they can see just what they missed.
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.
