How many of these will show up for Ireland v Kazakhstan @ Aviva ? Few hundred. These same tools with their Anti-English songs now and theyll dawn their Chelski,Pool,Utd etc jerseys next month.
Are the Irish fans bringing IRA songs to Euro? This is the first negative comment about Ireland supporters I've read. Do you have reason to think they're not the jolly lot the media is making them out to be.

There will always be republican songs sang by Irish fans, I am OK with that being a nationalist. Its the hipocracy of lets all hate England while were here this month before we dawn our Utd and Celtic shirts and never go to an actual game of Irish football ever. I went to Ireland v Denmark game years ago and they were booing "Rangers" players. I cracked up as I like Danish football and they were marked wrong in the program but ppl boo'd anyway just youknow, cause well theyre Lepregoons.

They are alll the jolly green army Lepregoon people having fun the media points out. I just have a hard time calling them Irish football fans rather than glory hunter Lepregoons. I am anti destroying the flag with idiotic Father Ted crap written on it too. I realise I am in the minority and I am looked upon like I am crazy by a vast majority of people but I am OK with that =)

Brian how do you know that Irish fans dont go to games. How do you know? Why do you like slagging people from your so called country all the time. We are proud of the lads for getting this far and it was good fun. There is nothing wrong with supporting your team.

Get in!!!

We were shocking though, if Ibrahimovich could have brung himself to pass the ball occasionally the meatball lovers would've won that! Still was an entertaining game, great result and confident we'll go through now.
Need to play a s**te site better though or we wont be going much further. Walnut and ox to start next game!

Cause the avg attendence is 1000 or below in Irish football and 20k went to Poland and there is 12 teams in the top flight in football. You do the math. You are a Pats "fan" so you should know all about that right, you go to all the games like you do a majority of the Liverpool games like you said. Or would that just ba tall tail.

Would you call yourself a fan of Irish football? You call everyone else Lepragoons or whatever you called them but how many Ireland or league of Ireland games have you been to this year? Well?

Yes I am a fan of Irish football. I have been to none obviously, season ticket holder of Shelbourne for over a decade and I still watch ShelsTV (www.shelstv.com) and MNS. I think its pretty obvious I have been to none this year John, dont get stupid for the sake of it. Probably the same amount of St Pats and Liverpool games youve been to this year probably.
