Where were you when Ireland qualified for Euro 2016? On a crisp November evening in Dublin, the onset of winter was put on hold: For the 50,000 fans packed into the Aviva Stadium, they knew they were about to witness something special. An assured Irish performance with smart finishing saw Ireland beat Bosnia 3-1 on aggregate and qualify for Euro 2016 in France.

From June 10th to July 10th, the country will be alive with millions of fans arriving for what promises to be an unforgettable tournament. With Ireland’s qualification confirmed, the camper vans will be sought and all roads will lead to France. For many, it will be a chance to relive the highs of trekking to Poland and following the Irish team at Euro 2012.
