Island's football fans to have ball in France next summer

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 18/11/2015

Congratulations to Martin O'Neill on guiding the Republic's team to next year's European Championships. It will be the first time that both teams on this island have qualified for the same major tournament and it is remarkable that both sides are managed by former Northern Ireland internationals.

They have imbued their teams with their own never-say-die attitude and no little skill, and both sets of supporters - who have a reputation for being welcome guests wherever they go - are sure to have some party in France. Let us hope they have much to cheer as well.
