Irish Ferries planning to carry Ireland's Green Army

Added: 18/11/15 : 12:39:25

Irish Ferries extends its congratulations to both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland on their success in making it through to the finals of next year’s European Championship in France.

In anticipation of its role as lead carriers of Ireland’s green army, the company looks forward to welcoming supporters for both teams on its services to France.

Already the company is preparing to roll out the green carpet and to that end their own team is busy making plans to determine how fans can best be accommodated alongside the many thousands of Irish holidaymakers who would normally travel to France at that time.

Dermot Merrigan, Head of Passenger Sales for the company said; “There’s going to be an amazing atmosphere on board this summer as both sets of fans head over.  Sailings will book up very fast though, so whether you’re enjoying the football, the poolside with the family, or pitch side with the best fans in the world, my advice is to secure your booking as early as possible.”

Bookings can be made by calling 0818 300 400. For more information visit
