Ukrainians living in Ireland had a rare opportunity to celebrate their country last night at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

It was an emotional evening for many Ukrainian fans as they watched their team beat Ireland 1-0 in the Nations League.

These fans explain what it meant to them to be at the event:

“To see my friend who’s from Ukraine who lives here, to see happy faces. it’s not often we see Ukrainian people smiling. It is so important that I support my country Ukraine, in this moment when it’s experiencing war. Irish people are supporting Ukraine and we are very grateful.”
