Advice needed - Ryanair baggage allowance

OK I am flying tomorrow morning. I was so incredibly stupid that I didn't read the fine print and realise my baggage is 1cm too high for carry-on/cabin. I read everywhere that the airline is super strict, and my IATA regulation bag, suitable for all airlines but Ryanair (since they introduced their new regs) almost certainly won't make it through. So....advice please....WHAT DO I DO? Do I risk it? Or do I risk seeing if there is a suitable bag in the airport to buy (overpriced no doubt).

It's your risk too take. But my own experience with RyanAir is that they only measure/weigh bags that look big/heavy.

If it's a soft sided bag that you don't over pack then it should squeeze into the cages they use to check size - 1cm is not a great deal.
