Ireland fans earn UEFA award at Euro 2012

Ireland's cheerful legions of singing fans have won a UEFA prize after winning millions of admirers at the European Championship.
UEFA says its president Michel Platini will visit Ireland soon to present an award to thank the "absolutely fantastic" fans.
UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino said, "everyone was very impressed with the fans of the Irish national team."
The Irish fans' singing of "The Fields of Athenry" filled stadiums in Poznan and Gdansk with emotion despite the team being mostly outclassed in losing to Croatia, Spain and Italy.
