Ireland fans are always one of the highlights of international tournaments when their team qualifies.
A new batch of boys in green have been heading to Lyon to watch their team play hosts France in the last-16 of Euro 2016 and while they will be massive underdogs, their spirits are characteristically high.
In fact, one Ryanair pilot made sure they started the party early by giving them a hilarious send-off.

Captain Greg Browne donned an Ireland jersey and made sure his plane full of fans were all singing - even warning them he'd send them all back home if they weren't loud enough.
He carried on his hilarious antics by introducing all the different crew members as Gary Breen, the popular former Ireland star.

Reasons to celebrate
Ireland have plenty of reasons to be cheerful having beaten all the odds to reach the knockout stages, escaping a difficult group comprising of Belgium, Italy, and Sweden.
Now that Northern Ireland are out after succumbing to an agonising late defeat to Wales, the Republic are the Emerald Isle's only remaining chance of unlikely glory.
Although France will be overwhelming favourites to reach the quarter-finals, Ireland weren't given much of a chance before the Italy game either, and they won that 1-0.
While it would be a major shock if they were to pull off an upset, it'd definitely be great to keep these feel-good fans at the tournament for a little while longer.
Can Ireland pull off a shock win over France? Have your say in the comments.
