The flights will operate with hand baggage only due to operational constraints, “and in honour of Thierry Henry’s infamous handball.”

Passengers who attempt to book a 15kg bag on the flight is being charged €150 return for their bag.

Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said: “We’ve been inundated with requests from Irish fans ever since the final whistle blew in Lille last night and we’ve scheduled 5 special Euro 2016 flights for Ireland’s crunch tie against France on Sunday in Lyon, departing Dublin on Saturday and Sunday morning, and returning on Sunday night and Monday morning. Seats are extremely limited so fans should sit down (for the Boys in Green), log on to www.ryanair.com and book their flights to Lyon.These Euro specials will sell fast and are only available for booking on the Ryanair.com website. Fans should note that these flights will operate with hand baggage only, to remind ourselves of Thierry Henry’s handball in 2009, and we all hope the French defence joins their Air Traffic Controllers and the rest of their unions by going AWOL on Sunday.”
