The accepted consensus in Switzerland is that the Irish game will be in Geneva. All media having been referring to Basel getting the Denmark game and Geneva the Irish game, as they like to move their matches around the country. 26k capacity isn't ideal if big numbers of Irish travel.

Not to piss on your chips or anything, but accepted consensus and actual official word from their FA are poles apart

Also when you consider how important the game could be that late in the campaign, there could be more than enough interest from their own fans for the game to be in Basel.  I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being played there.

Direct trains from Frankfurt to all the potential venues except Geneva, afaik.

None of them should be more than €40 each way, and only Geneva is over four and a bit hours.

The train should be quicker than flying to anywhere bar Geneva, coming from Frankfurt.

There's normally a Cork to Geneva flight but it may be out of season by October.

Except you're all ignoring the Swiss and their Swissness, they don't do last minute changes, uncertainty or anything that's not meticulously planned.
