Video: Famous Ireland football victory prompts jubilant celebrations by Limerick Gardaí

After the Republic of Ireland’s historic victory over world champions last night, the Gardaí in Limerick did their best to ensure celebrations in the city went on as long and loud as possible.

Shane Long’s winner sent the country into a delirium that was sustained well into the wee hours.

Watch below, as the local boys in blue use their squad car to blast out Put ‘em under pressure, the Italia’ 90 classic by the Horslips, while the crowd belts it out at maximum lung capacity.

This, of course, was a top notch gesture from the guards but, it was 3am, and you’d think they’d have more sense.

In fairness, even the most straight-laced of coppers probably couldn’t help being swept away by the thoughts of heading to France next summer.
