Die hard Laois soccer fans searching for Ireland tickets in Copenhagen

A group of Laois lads have just arrived in the Danish capital where they are on the hunt for tickets to the Republic of Ireland and Denmark World Cup play-off match.

Stradbally men Paddy Robbins, JP Cushen and Wayne Comerford are there with Timahoe duo Damien O’Connor and Richard Oxley.

The group have secured three tickets for Saturday night’s match but they still need two more.

The lads are avid followers of the Republic and have travelled all over the world to watch them.

They are also key members of the Laois branch of the Republic of Ireland supporters club which was only formed last year.

The lads were on Snapchat duty for us in Cardiff last month and they will be taking over again tomorrow.

They will be doing the build-up while Ronan Curran, one half of the Bear in the Square, will cover the match for us.

We will then be switching back JP and the lads for the after match reaction.

But in the meantime, fingers crossed the lads can get the two tickets that they need.

If you hear of any floating around, contact us here!
