The day has finally arrived for the 23-names that made it into Martin O'Neill's Euro 2016 squad.

The Ireland panel have flown to France from Dublin airport this afternoon to get ready for the tournament which kicks off this Friday with a match between the host nation and Romania.

Ireland's first game is on Monday in Paris against Sweden, with the team based just outside the capital city in Versailles.
