Irish fans have taken over Paris this evening in the run-in to our opening Euro 2016 opening game against Sweden.

Our videos show supporters congregating in the Montmarte and Pigalle areas of the French capital in advance of kick-off.

Good natured fans sang 'Come on you boys in green' as they prepared to set off for the Stade de France.

French police closed off a main road outside the Moulin Rouge as fans lapped up the atmosphere.

Over 20,000 Irish fans are expected to cheer on the Boys in Green.
