Due to huge demand, we’ve scheduled extra flights from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Dublin which are on sale now on the Ryanair.com website.”

The match will have extra intensity after Scotland’s defeat to Ireland in the opening game of the World Cup, where Greig Laidlaw’s solitary penalty delivered Scotland’s only points and left them facing an impossible task to make the later stages of the tournament.
