WATCH: Irish Soccer Fans Serenade a Nun with the Our Father

Aleteia - published on 06/21/16

Irish fans of Euro 2016 surprise a traveling Little Sister of the Poor on a train

The Irish may not have done so well on the field this year, but you may just remember them as the best fans in the world from Euro 2016. After singing a lively song to police in a tunnel in Bordeaux, France, Irish fans still had enough game in them to sing a rowdy rendition of the “Our Father” prayer to a religious sister on the train. Thankfully, the sister responded with the same joy and good humor of her Irish serenaders.
