One Irish fan dressed as leprechaun is making quite an impression on the internet.
The level or cordiality and craic among the Ireland and Sweden fans in Saint-Denis could not have come at a better time for the tournament organisers following a weekend of brutal violence in Marseilles.
If the sing-songs and playful banter outside the ground didn't illustrate the sportsmanship enough, this Irish supporter's presence in the sea of yellow at the Sweden section of the ground did it.
No segregation necessary when Irish fans are involved but who is the mystery fan?
For the record the leprechaun was very respectful when Ireland scored, raised arms in the air briefly. Classy leprechauning.— talkSPORTDrive (@talkSPORTDrive) June 13, 2016

Never thought a Leprechaun would make me so proud to be Irish https://t.co/VRNAUipTmE— mark little (@marklittlenews) June 14, 2016
