Watch the FAI’s storming celebration of Euro 2016

The 2016 European Championship is over but the memories will last a lifetime.

When we went into half-time 1-0 up against France in our last 16 game, Ireland fans began to dream in earnest.

Unfortunately, tired legs meant the hosts went on to win 2-1, but the team and their fans could leave with their heads held high after acquitting themselves with honour throughout the tournament.

From the highs and lows of the qualifiers to the glory of Robbie Brady’s late winner against Italy, the FAI have packed a lot of emotion into this short reminder of the journey we have all been on.

As they say: “When we get together, it all comes together.” Roll on the

World Cup qualifiers.
