Northern Ireland fans frustrated by a shortage of flights and the threat of air traffic control strikes have been urged to consider taking a ferry option to France for Saturday’s Euro 2016 tie with Wales.

There are a number of options from Stena Lane.

The first ferry is tonight, Thursday, with the only available direct sailing from Rosslare to Cherbourg departing at 8.30pm. It will see football fans arrive in France at 4.30pm tomorrow. Price from €319 single for car plus driver with additional passengers costing €38 each per adult.
