The Best Leprechauns of All Time


Created in 1964, the mascot has been all “Put up yer dukes!” while presiding over national championships, the Rudy Ruettiger saga, and campaign sloganization of “Win one for the Gipper!” We especially like the Notre Dame Leprechaun because he’s the most stereotypical of them all: He’s short, he’s drunk (look at how askew his hat is), he has terrible facial hair, and he’s itching for a fight.
