A nation holds its breath! Many of us remember those famous words uttered by RTÉ Sports commentator George Hamilton moments before David O’Leary netted that famous penalty against Romania sending the Republic of Ireland to the quarter finals of the Italia 90 World Cup – albeit without winning a single game!

The team returned from a heroic display to be greeted by an estimated 500,000 people lining the streets from Dublin Airport to O’Connell Street. (Proportionately, more people came out to celebrate Ireland’s defeat in the Italia 90 quarter finals than the number of Germans who celebrated the World Cup winning team). For three weeks the nation experienced something close to mass hysteria.” – Edwin Bowe, Murmur

A collection of photographs taken by Irish photographer Tony O’Shea of the fans who lined those roads.
