The Best Thing We Shared

With the European Championships a little over a week away, Ireland fans will be packing for their trips to France and whether travelling by plane, train or automobile, a solid playlist is essential.

We compiled a few of the must haves, including a bit of Depeche Mode.

On The Record

“It’s a difficult one, when you’ve been to war, part of a group, and you have that tight knit thing going on, even if someone I played with had a disaster I couldn’t (lash into them), because I’ve been to hell and back with them, so I’m loyal to them.“You build a friendship up over 20, 25 years – if anybody asked me to speak bad of Robbie [Keane], it’s not gonna happen.”

Damien Duff on his decision to stay away from the RTÉ panel for Ireland’s Euro 2016 games.
