The Email That Every Irish Fan Is Hoping To See Before The End Of The Day

Prepare to feel incredibly jealous.

While we're obviously ecstatic that Ireland have made it through to the last 16 of Euro 2016, if we're being honest, there's a bit of regret that we were given the Sunday fixture against France as opposed to the Saturday fixture against Croatia.

That's no real judgement on the quality of either side. France may well have come into the tournament as favourites, but Croatia have been rather impressive in the group stage so we're not really losing or gaining anything in terms of the quality of opposition. What we are losing however, is a lie on the next day.

We're delighted to still be involved but it would have been particularly nice to know that, no matter what the result, we had a nice long Sunday to sleep off what's going to be one hell of a party.

As BBC NI have taught us, you always have options but, ideally, you wouldn't be cutting ties with your career for the sake of a blinding hangover inspired by an Irish win over France. What you need to do, between now and the end of the day is pray. Pray for a boss like this.

Ray Lonergan, who works at Pulse College and Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin, shared the following email with the Balls Euro 2016 Facebook group and promptly made the rest of us sick with jealousy.

If anyone is looking for the best workplace in Ireland, we may have found it. Everyone has the day off on Monday and, not only that, the manner in which it was announced is absolute perfection. Bravo to all in involved, now excuse us while we turn puke green with envy.
