Red carpet rolled out for green army
THE Polish city of Torun is going to be base camp for Irish fans.
The city promised not to raise prices for the Euros, and is perfectly positioned half-way between Poznan and Gdansk -- where Ireland play their games.
Many members of supporters' group You Boys In Green (YBIG) are basing themselves there. On June 16, a team of fans will take on a Torun 11, and the mayor has helped organise a festival.
Irish fans are reciprocating by fundraising for a hospice.
