Heartening news from Krakow, where Sheamus Ryan from Ennis and his pals are basing themselves before hitting Poznan later in the week.
He was one of a large number of Irish taunting England fans outside the English team's hotel.
"You'll never best the Irish" was thrown at the English, as was chants of "Maradona" who famously used the 'Hand of God' to beat Blighty's best.
Naturally, England fans responded with "Thierry Henry" and "You're going down with the Euro".
T'was all in good fun, though, we hear.
