Irish fans will travel in big numbers to France
Irish fans will travel in big numbers to France

Ireland fans have been very busy since the Euro 2016 draw last month as they finalise their travel plans for the trip to France in June.

But there are other pressing issues to finalise also. Fans around the country have been busy making their own customised flags as the Boys In Green prepare to paint the Eiffel Tower green.

We have had some classic flags recently including a Lionel Richie tribute to Shane Long and another Long tribute equating him to a bottle of Bulmers! Last month, hero in the play-off win over Bosnia, Jon Walters, was immortalised as Michael Collins.

Father Ted has previously made an appearance with the saying 'Is there anything to be said for another mass?' making its way to countries like Austria and Poland.

And now, John McEnroy another for the collection.
