Dublin: 10 °C Friday 21 February, 2020

This legend of a Ryanair pilot had the craic with Irish fans on a flight to Lyon this morning

“The first officer, his name is Gary Breen. The number one today, her name is Gary Breen as well.”

IRISH FANS ARE still making their way to Lyon for the match later today – but one batch of supporters got a lovely treat on their flight this morning.

2FM DJ Declan Pierce was on a Ryanair flight from Dublin to Lyon when Captain Greg Browne did something unusual: He came out of the cockpit to welcome them all in.

After telling them to “have loads of craic” on the flight, he introduced him to his team of Gary Breens:
