If Ireland fans back home need inspiration for the upcoming crunch game against Spain, follow the lead of those who made it to Euro 2012.

Yes, the Green Army is lighting up Poland with blind-drunk optimism and never-say-die spirit. Mainly vodka.

Here’s SIX of the best YouTube clips so far

#1. Straight in at number one. Oh, Stephen Ireland, he used to be an Irish but he’s English now. Straight from Poznan. Respect.

Meanwhile, outside Copper Face Jack’s…

#6. Walking in a St Ledger Wonderland. Ok, this was filmed before Euro 2012. But it shows the love Irish fans have, generally, for the team. Especially when you’ve recently visited a popular Harcourt Street drinking emporium in central Dublin. Sean St Ledger is a good sport.
