French people have completely fallen in love with Irish fans at the Euros

“Les rois de l’ambiance.” The kings of atmosphere!

WE DON’T NEED TO tell you that Irish fans are having the time of their lives at the Euros – it’s obvious.

BuzzFeed France listed the Irish supporters’ good-natured high jinks as ‘proof that Irish fans have already won Euro 2016′:

Meanwhile, the French seem to be absolutely fine with the Irish invading their home turf. Here’s some of what they have to say:

The Irish supporters are among the best of the Euros! And I don’t say that because the majority of them are red-haired…

The Irish supporters win the trophy of the best supporters of the Euros. They are huge!

I don’t think there are better fans than the Irish. They are awesome, fascinating, funny, smiley.

Well lads, you’re doing us proud. Keep it up.
