The young supporters were accompanied by mentors from the club and some equally enthusiastic parents and the convened in Kentstown before boarding two coaches to make the trip to Dublin at around 5.45pm.
Despite the reversal for the Republic of Ireland the boys and girls enjoyed the outing and really got behind the team to provide as much encouragement as possible for the Boys In Green.
