Slideshow: Michael D. Higgins travels to Poland with Irish fans

President arrives in Poznan ahead of crunch Euro 2012 game.

THERE MAY HAVE been a few bleary-eyed travellers looking at the diminutive man in the grey suit this morning and wondering “is that; no, it couldn’t be.”

It really was President Michael D. Higgins though as he joined hundreds of other travellers on an early morning flight to Poland to cheer on the boys in green.

Upon landing, President Higgins wasted no time in posing with Irish fans ahead of tonight’s big game.
