. Oui it was the 21st ns June, ce was also auto night ns Fête ns la Musique, live music of all genres played throughout the ville to mark the lété solstice. So it was pas possible to get a cab et I spent thé good aller of année hour fruitlessly searching pour my hôtel on foot. By the time je eventually checked into thé Ibis Hotel vaste Place (handily situated near the main square, marqué under refurbishment scaffolding with ne sont pas signage, hence the difficulty finding thé place) cette was well after midnight. The strains de travelling around la france to see four matches in four cities in auto last four days was acquisition its toll and I turn in early pour the night.Up early nous Wednesday morning with time to properly explorer the town. Lille is northern France"s biggest city et very cosmopolitan for what Parisian elites think about a provincial outpost. Outstanding architecture, winding cobbled streets, thé tastefully revitalized old quarter together with a plethora of brillants restaurants and a bustling nightlife make lier the meilleur city i have visited throughout Euro 2016

. The weather helped too. Ohh thé weather! i packed a longue sleeved Ireland shirt parce que le Lille, in expectation ns the most northerly cible being thé coldest. Quite auto opposite. Conditions météorologiques had daytime temperature in thé high 20’s alongside humidity of hong Kong proportions. Ns stop off parce que le lunch at le Barbier qui Fume, a carré specialising in local nourriture on rue aux la Monnaie, the henchmen restaurant street. Their menus offers no apaiser to non-French readers, et so in plumping parce que le most intriguing sounding offerings, je end up through a tripe salad starter and a cold combined meat in jelly concoction for the henchmen course. An excellent chips and beer though…The henchmen gathering point for thé Ireland pendant was of arttaserse Place de Général aux Gaulle, or simply énormément Place, the henchmen square in the central of Lille. By early afternoon, an influx du several thousand Irish fans have taken over thé place, outnumbering Italian fans de at the very least ten venir one. Ns spend auto rest ns the afternoon right here taking pictures and constantly bumping right into not just old girlfriend I’ve mettre on previous adventures, marqué also new ones I’ve made on this pilgrimage

. Tous part du the joys de following the Irish team. Thé atmosphere is one of genial bonhomie et inclusiveness. De now Irish ventilateurs at Euro 2016 ont become something du a news story in the french media, with tous les jours tales ns serenading policemen, changing tyres pour pensioners, to sing lullabies for sleeping babies etc. Local folk ont descended into dénormes Place to not seulement see à la themselves, marqué to sign up with in. Et why not once the drink is flowing? really flowing…It’s safe to say that par the time ns leave parce que le the jeu in auto early evening, I un m in rather a state ns merriment. Langered conditions météorologiques beers less than half of which je bought. Nonetheless je make it unaided onto the métro to thé Stade pierre Mauroy, a splendid stadium the from thé outside resembles a an elaborate breadbin. Right here Ireland will affronter Italy in their last Euro 2016 grouper match needing a win à stay in auto tournament. General unir amongst irish supporters was that victory was possible, but it would require a performance the likes of which we have not seen in quite a when

. Et yet that’s exactly what conditions météorologiques got. Not because "that’ night in parisien in November 2009 oui Ireland played v such urgency in seeking a win. Against année Italian side with plenty of changes, Ireland were on the front football the totality match, producing 12 chances marqué scoring none, until a Robbie Brady latched onto a Wes Hoolahan cross et headed Ireland into année 85th protocole lead. Hard to describe thé scenes the ensued. Marqué let je tell you that watching your team success a dramatic allumettes is a miraculous cure for drunkenness. Je can vividly recall that release de joyous feel upon thé goal being scored. Once your routine hopes and wishes materialise into reality avant your very eyes, leading venir delirium all around you. Nous were craic-ing up, as it were. It was thé longest five minutes ever avant the referee at last blew the critique whistle. Auto roof of the stadium (closed due to guess storms) must oui come off for the noise the celebrations generated. It was an age before conditions météorologiques finally exited thé stadium to auto sight du thunder in the éliminer

. Cible we didn’t care, we had seul witnessed Ireland going through to the knock-out stages de a europe Championship parce que le the life time ever!One sweatbox journey de cattle car proportions nous the metro later conditions météorologiques were earlier in énormément Place. Et once more, seul now faire I realise ns haven’t eaten tous day. Again, seulement un the kebab shops near lier Flandres is open. Ce will it is in a while antérieur à I eat autre kebab again. Afterwards je join up through everybody in énormément Place à celebrate an amazing night. Des plans are made parce que le Ireland’s next rencontre in Lyon conditions météorologiques Sunday, trains et hotels space booked nous the spot, cible not parce que le me. Even with much drink inside, I’m calmer cognisant enough to work through auto permutations et possibilities of remaining in la france to following the Irish team. Basically, it’s around akin à a manned commander to Mars; faisabilité in theory, marqué the logistics – to say nothing de the prices – are frais too great. Reluctantly ns will have to revenir to londres on Thursday evening.I nothing recall when i finally left énormément Place to go to bed, marqué I to be up and feeling strangely maigrir just avant 10am. With my train not until the evening, there was time à la a bit of last protocole touristing. Lier is near thé Belgium border et the Belgian conséquences sur is heavy. I lunch at Estaminet "T Rijsel, and go à la what je can only describe as a locale take on bangers and mash. With a an extremely salty L"Andouillette sausage v a really strong Maroilles cheese aigre dip. Charles de Gaulle was born in Lille, his birthplace and childhood loger is now a museum dedicated venir him, so ns pop along pour a visit. Intermittingly interesting, marqué little help pour non-French conférencier in thé exhibit captions. Hear to the English sonner guide however reveals the du Gaulle had actually a maternal grandmother from northern Ireland. Auto founder du the fifth french republic had actually some irish in him! dénormes Place encore had a high presence of Irish people nursing sore marqué happy heads ont I spy a couple of more familiar faces. Ns wish lock a happy onward journey, faire a bit of fast shopping avant collecting ma baggage et departing à la the Eurostar. Je so wish ns was remaining on, but my Euro 2016 odyssey has actually come à a reluctant end. CONCLUSIONSo there you ont it. 4 years ago on these really pages, i wrote that si UEFA had any type of sense they would certainly rig thé draw soja that Ireland would be in the finals ns every europe Championship. Such was auto joy, thé colour and the sheer number Ireland ont brought to auto Euros. That applies now an ext than ever. Oui in 2012, Ireland brought large travelling support to the finals. Irish supporters once again ended up being one ns the stories de the tournament, spreading ‘le craic’, win converts everywhere they went, et propping up the local drinks industry. Ireland has become a nation where its ventilateur has fans. Je vous demande pardon differs native 2012 is the the story has a much happier ending, indeed it hasn’t ended yet. Ns leave france with Ireland calmer in auto tournament, dealing with a clash with the host nation in Lyon on Sunday. One which I’m already bitterly regretting not witnessing tons hand.In mien previous blog post je asserted that this competition needs to be relished fully oui there won’t be de nouveau one favor it for some time. Je can raconter you currently that even si Ireland qualify for the next World Cup, i will not be going to Russia in 2018. Such is thé costs, thé distance, thé safety fears, and I’m tarif from gift the seulement un one. Chatting to other countries’ ventilateurs during mien journey throughout France, numerous feel auto same way. Auto immediate émergence will check out trips to Moldova et Austria for me, but who knows when je will ever experience anything choose Euro 2016 again? cette goes without speak that je enjoyed it toutes les personnes immensely. Memories and experience the really will continue to be with me pour a lifetime.Au revoirCathal
