When there is a big international football match on in Dublin it’s common to see people attempting to sell the dreaded half-and-half scarves and other match-day regalia on the way to Lansdowne Road.
German street vendors are no different and it seems they were keen to tap in to the inner Irish republican of the travelling Irish support in Gelsenkirchen ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifier between Germany and the Republic of Ireland.
