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...
???????????? #COYBIG Well done!????

Ah, proud of how well they played. No shame in being beaten by a better team. Well done Ireland. #coybig

They gave everything. We can ask no more. Euro 2016 was a magical tournament for Ireland. ???? #Coybig

This is what Irish football is - heart and skill and passion and fight. No shame in losing this one. #FRAIRL

We were absolutely out on our feet for the last 15 minutes. The team did us and themselves proud!
Really gave it a lash #COYBIG

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 ????
