A Credit To Their Country – 15 Tweets Summing Up The Pride Of A Nation As We Bow Out Of The Euros
Heartbreaking. But man, we did ourselves proud.
The dream is over – but what a fortnight we've had.
Moments we'll remember forever, and a team that made us absolutely beam with pride as a nation – we fought the good fight, and our team can come home with their heads held high.
Just look at what Twitter's been saying...
They did us proud. Great job lads. We'll all be out when you get home #COYBIG— Sue Murphy (@IllSueYa) June 26, 2016
Ah, proud of how well they played. No shame in being beaten by a better team. Well done Ireland. #coybig— Dara Ó Briain (@daraobriain) June 26, 2016
They gave everything. We can ask no more. Euro 2016 was a magical tournament for Ireland. 😢 #Coybig— Paddy McKenna (@PaddyMcKenna) June 26, 2016

This is what Irish football is - heart and skill and passion and fight. No shame in losing this one. #FRAIRL— Philip O'Connor (@philipoconnor) June 26, 2016

We are still the greatest nation! Now the team need to joint the fans on the streets of Lyon tonight and party one last time #COYBIG 💚— Meghann Scully ✨ (@Meghann_Scully) June 26, 2016
