  • Savings

Its six years since Irish soccer fans descended on Poland for Euro 2012, yet it doesn’t seem like it was that long ago. Time really does fly so starting a savings plan now could get your money working harder for you, sooner. 

Irish soccer supporters have earned a reputation for being the best fans in the world and their entertaining antics off the pitch have been a source of great amusement worldwide. Whether it’s charming the locals with their friendly banter or their boisterous singing on the streets, no matter where Irish fans go, their enthusiasm and sense of fun is contagious.


It was six years ago when Irish soccer fans stole hearts in Poznan when 30,000 fans descended on Poland for Euro 2012. Although that was six years ago, it doesn’t feel like it was that long ago. Time flies so it makes sense to start saving today for tomorrow.
