If there’s one thing people connect with the Irish it’s their love of drinking. So with the European Championships set to begin this weekend in France, one pub has prepared for the arrival of thousands of thirsty Irish fans.

That’s Ma Nolan’s in Nice, where they’ve ordered more than 350 kegs. The Republic of Ireland is playing its opening game up in Paris, but Northern Ireland takes on Poland at the Stade de Nice on Sunday. Presumably their fans will do just as much damage.
