Dublin: 3 °C Monday 17 February, 2020

Some of the flags displayed by Irish fans in Lille last night were inspired

“Tell Mammy, send money”

IT’S OBVIOUS AT this stage that Lille belonged to one Robbie “Jesus Christ” Brady last night.

But, as ever, the Irish fans were out in force and – they brought along their best flags

We knew who would be up next if the boys did the business

Revenge is on the cards, perhaps.

And in Lille today, there were WB Yeats references to that incident

We had important messages to send home from the stadium

And pun quotas to fill

There were Simpsons flags left over from the Belgium game

And shout outs to very specific pubs

“Get in. Get out. Get 3 points”

The Italian Job was a roaring success.

And so were the flags.
