PIC: There was some mess left in Cardiff city centre before Ireland v Wales last night
Cans. Cans everywhere.
As they tend to do everywhere they go, Irish fans generated a brilliant atmosphere in the run-up to Ireland’s memorable victory over Wales last night, an atmosphere that was maintained during and after what will hopefully turn out to be a crucial three points.
Followers of the Boys in Green had gathered in St. Mary Street, a short distance from The Principality Stadium, before kick-off, with video footage illustrating what were jovial scenes amongst the significant travelling contingent on Monday afternoon.
With Welsh fans also gathered in the area, it was almost inevitable there was going to be a little bit of a mess left behind and indeed, this is the sight that greeted Cardiff City Council after fans had left the area to take their seats in the stadium.

Thankfully, as can be seen in pictures available on Wales Online here, the council did a bang up job and the streets were spotless come Tuesday morning; hopefully ‘Clean up for the Boys in Green’ will get another rendition when we’re on the road again for the play-offs next month.
