European Media Aren't Half Blowing Air Up Irish Fan's Arses

European Media Aren't Half Blowing Air Up Irish Fan's Arses

In case you weren't aware, Euro 2016 is on - and the Irish are the talk of the town.

Tricolours invaded the streets of Paris, we saw wonderful videos of dancing in the streets, singing ABBA and Boyzone with Swedish fans, helping old ladies with their cars before more singing. Then we went to Bordeaux and it was more of the same. We even cleaned up after ourselves.

We've givens ourselves a pat on the back, and rightly so. We're marvellous and we know it. And now the European media knows it too. And they're saying so. A lot.

So much so that it's blowing air up our arses. We get it Europe, we're brilliant. Don't over do it.

We've seen Germans write love letters to our fans. The French then got in on the act. And then there was Channel Four's feature on the news about how brilliant we are.


It's not hard to see what Europe doesn't love us - we are great. But best fans in the world like the French are suggesting? Don't they know that Irish people are uncomfortable with these big proclamations - however true. "Ah wud ya stop".


Charles Thialler wants to know why the world wants Ireland to be at these major events. Why the sight of the Irish fans dominating the streets of Paris, or singing their hearts off is desirable.

He speaks to Gerard Pique, who says he'll never forget the atmosphere when Spain faced Ireland in Euro 2012. There's interviews with official supporters club spokesmen about what makes Irish fans so special (via google translate):

We go to party, and we know how. We drink pints, we sing, we sympathize with the other fans, but mostly we never fight, even after drinking several pints.

This, coming right after the German's loved our flags. It's been a great tournament for the Irish.

Now would ya stop.
