Irish fans cunningly find the quickest route to the Stade de France bar

Irish Rugby is on an absolute high at the present moment.

With the team playing some sensational rugby, it is understandable that the Irish fans have been in a festive mood throughout the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup.

Whilst there is no doubt, the Irish team and fans are aware of the seismic task that awaits them against the All Blacks in the quarterfinal. Undoubtedly, they will be relishing the challenge and the atmosphere that one of the Rugby World Cup’s most successful sides brings to the table.

Unrivalled Craic

One area in which the Irish fans have no equal, however, is in their hilarious off-the-field antics that have brought a jovial atmosphere to all of their matches.

Whether it is goal kicking down the streets of Paris, singing songs or simply lapping up the French culture. It is safe to say the Irish have enjoyed their time in France to date.

One area that they would certainly like to impart some expertise, however, is to the bar staff at the various French Stadiums who have struggled to cope with the sheer volume of fans.

Particularly challenging has been the bar at the Stade de France, where Ireland have played their past two matches and will once again take to on Saturday for the quarterfinal.

Like a packed evening in Temple Bar, the stadium bars have been a challenge to get to and have often seen long waiting times to be served.

For one group of Irish fans, the saying “Where there is a will, there is a way” is certainly applicable.

Cutting out the long walk from the stands to the bar, the genius fans decided to employ their fellow fan’s assistance to avoid the stadium steps.

Crowd surfing their way to the top, the fans gave everyone at the tournament another event to chuckle at. Top work, lads!
