Ushers Quay in Dublin City came to a standstill as Irish campervans heading to Euro 2012 queued up for free fuel courtesy of Paddy Power.
Paddy Power was feeling more generous than Santa on steroids and the massive Irish following lapped it up.
Fans of the boys in green who are driving to Poland for the tournament were treated to €100 of free petrol by Paddy after the bookie was inundated with calls asking for a helping hand.
Irish football legends John Aldridge and Ray Houghton manned the pumps alongside top models Nadia Forde and Lynn Kelly as more than 50 campervans descended on the Top Oil station.
Paddy couldn’t help getting involved in the action as fans travelled from around the country to take advantage of the offer.
Lines of vans queued outside the station waiting for the fuel to start flowing and a chance to meet John Aldridge and Ray Houghton – the man who scored that famous header in the 1-0 win over England at Euro ’88 in Germany.
“Being with all the fans here today has got me properly excited,” said former Liverpool goal king Aldridge who was capped 69 times for Ireland. “I know the players and the fans will do us proud in Poland and fair play to Paddy helping them get over there.”
