The good news fell three days before the shock of the Tournament between Ireland and France, Saturday (3:15 p.m.), the second lifting of the competition for the Blues after their victory in Italy on Sunday (24-29).

All tricolor supporters who have obtained tickets will finally be able to make the trip and attend the meeting.

The ten flights, out of the thirty chartered from France, which had previously been refused due to a lack of staff at the airport in the Irish capital, were accepted on Wednesday evening.

Airport services, impacted by social movements, have been resized to accommodate everyone.

The staff has been reinforced to welcome the supporters who will take off this Friday.
