SHAY Given enjoyed a great night for Ireland in Dublin – and here are some great pictures from Stephen Doherty from Lansdowne Road (it’s named after an insurance company now!)
Shay told Sky Sports: “It’s a historic moment. It’s been a long 16 months but we’re extremely happy obviously. We deserved it and we’ll celebrate tonight for sure.”
The shot-stopper admits it was a strange night given his side’s huge 4-0 advantage from the first leg, which was extended by Stephen Ward’s first-half effort.
“It was a little bit (strange), and for the crowd, because we were four goals ahead from the first leg and then five in the first half,” he said. “But we’re just going to enjoy the atmosphere now.
“I think the lads deserve it, it’s been a long road, and we’ll look forward to next summer.”
Our picture special comes from Stephen Doherty at Lansdowne Road.
