Poznan mayor organises Dublin billboards to thank Irish fans

The billboards, which have appeared in a few locations in Dublin city centre, call the Irish the ‘Kings of the Craic’.

THE MAYOR OF the city of Poznan has sponsored billboards in Dublin to thank Irish fans for bringing their own brand of ‘craic’ to the city during Euro 2012.

The Irish fans made such an impression in Poland that residents of Pozana gathered to sing the fans off when they were leaving at the end of the tournament. A local newspaper also gave the fans a frontpage headline, declaring ‘The Irish, We Will Miss You’.

Now a tribute has appeared here on home soil, after billboards and posters appeared this morning at O’Connell Bridge and Grafton Street declaring that the Irish are the ‘Kings of the Craic’ and ‘Poznan thanks you’.
