would like to thank Michael O"Neil the 
team and the Green And White Army for the Amazing experience I had following the team with the GAWA through Europe.. I met so many people from around the world one a man who had been in Canada for fifty three years who had made he trip with his granddaughter  People from Australia,New Zealand,America,South Africa and many other places all following the team from the country of their birth. Many doubted they could qualify but they finished top of the group.They said they would not get out of their group in France but reached the last sixteen only to loose to a cruel own goal to Wales. Exhausted at times I found my self running on adrenaline but I am so pleased I made the Journey with the best supporters in the world the GAWA.
