WITH the Euros just two months away Irish fans will be hoping that it’ll be a summer to remember.

One major international tournament that’ll live long in the memories is that of Italia ’90.

Ireland reached the quarter-finals and their World Cup journey inspired incredible scenes of celebration back home.

Now, thanks to modern technology, Irishman Mick Costello was able to share a previously unseen video online – recorded by his father-in-law Peter Dempsey – of fans going crazy in the Harbour Bar and along Main Street in Arklow, Co. Wicklow.

Martin O’Neill’s men will no doubt be hoping to bask in the nostalgia of 1990 and draw the same kind of fanfare this time around.
