Watch: The Spirit Of The Euros Was Alive And Well In Chicago Last Night

Irish fans have a habit of taking over places - and the Irish rugby supporters are having a hell of a party in Chicago after their side's incredible victory over the All Blacks on Saturday.

At the Euros in June, Irish football fans - from both north and south - made international headlines with their well-spirited celebrations following the performances of the Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland teams in the tournament.

And the Irish rugby supporters have followed suit in Chicago following Ireland's incredible victory over New Zealand on Saturday. Great celebrations were underway outside Soldier's Field on Saturday after the game, and the mother and father of all sessions was surely had in the Windy City.

For those of us who can't be there, these clips are enjoyable as they are the closest we get to sampling some of the incredible atmosphere generated by the Irish.

Note in the second clip the obligatory half-naked lad scaling a lamp-post and the highly impressive one-armed dab he manages on his way back down the pole. Chapeau, fine sir.

Photographs have also emerged of a lovely poster tribute to Anthony Foley, in addition to the Ireland team's touching tribute to him when facing the Haka before the match (which Foley's family has since praised).
