Irish fans told they won't be able for the Polish beer
Irish Euro 2012 fans are being warned to watch their beer intake as the Poles think they won't be able for it.
The advice comes from Polish expats living in Cork and may be more friendly than it initially appears. The MyCork Polish Association held a special information evening for members of the Green Army set to flood into Polish cities this summer.
They warned the lads who plan to travel that many of their pilsners and ales can be up to three times stronger than ours and several times cheaper.
Ireland's group stage matches are being held in the northern city of Gdansk and Poznan in the East and the fans who are making the journey are being inundated with advice from all quarters.
The latest round seems to have been one of the best. The burning question on most fans lips is 'where the hell am I going to stay?', and the Cork Poles managed to answer that as well as providing a beer-tasting session to boot.
The group's president told the Irish Sun: "If supporters drink as much as they do in Ireland, I'd worry that some of them who've bought tickets for games would end up missing the matches."
Good sound advice there from people in the know.
