The big match is on today but the Irish fans were arriving in their droves into Lyon this evening.
We saw them on the planes singing with Mick Konstantin as well as having a proper folk session on the way over and they set out on a charm offensive straight away in the Irish pubs and on the streets of Lyon.
Here are some of the best videos and tweets from last night...
