The Irish fans had one heck of a street party in Lyon last night

A sea of green.

IRELAND V FRANCE should be kicking off right about now in Lyon – yesterday, while the team was training, the fans were keeping the morale going.

They swarmed the streets of the city for a massive party that went on until all hours of Sunday morning, with some of the maddest scenes witnessed since the start of the tournament.

There was lamppost climbing

A bit of Shane Long’s On Fire, and more climbing

An attempt to sing in French

A+ for effort.

And a bit of standing up and sitting down for the Boys In Green

They’re definitely getting their exercise in, anyway?

A singalong, accompanied by a man on an acoustic guitar (of course)

And yet more chanting, directed by a man standing on what appears to be a bus shelter

If this is what it’s like already, we don’t even know what it’ll be like if we win (please god fingers crossed). COYBIG!
