The Mayor of Poznan is coming to Dublin to say thanks. And he's bringing some pictures
They have already stuck a billboard saying thanks but now the Mayor of Poznan is coming to Dublin, and he’s bringing some photos.
While Ireland’s on-pitch performances were a little below what we expected, the fans exceeded our expectations. From boob licking to endless singing, Euro 2012 will be remembered for the fans and little else in this country.
It seems the people of Poznan may feel the same. They thanked the Irish fans when they left, they sang our songs in our absence and they even stuck up a billboard in Dublin in gratitude.
Now the top man in the city, Mayor Ryszard Grobelny, is coming here to say thanks in person. According to today’s Irish Daily Mirror, Grobelny will visit Dublin next Thursday, where he will host an exhibition of photos from the city during Euro 2012.
“I am very delighted that Euro 2012 ended with such success and great response from all over the world. As the Lord Mayor of Poznan, I am proud that all European fans, especially the ones from Ireland, felt so good and safe in Poznan.
“I would like to say a big thank you to all of them by bringing those beautiful images of supporting their national colours in Poznan.”
So, if you were one of the thousands who enjoyed a Poznan party last month, get down to St Stephen’s Green in Dublin next week. You might just see a few snaps of yourself.
