As St. Patrick’s Day comes to a close, many of you are recovering from celebrating, while others were dressed in green today. To honor this great holiday that many people don’t really understand, here are the top four mascots in sports who have some Irish in them.
4. University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors

Once called the “Rainbows”, people flock to Hawaii looking for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and never return. (Ok, that’s not true…but we don’t blame those who stay)

3. Celtic Football Club (Soccer)

Not much has to be said about the history of this club. If you like soccer, you are familiar. If you want a history less, you can find it here.

2. Boston Celtics

One of the most recognizable mascots/logos in all of sports. It seem for many years that the luck of the Irish was with the Celtics as they dominated the NBA.

1. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The obvious choice for number one on this list. A real mascot running around at your sporting events? Yeah, that’s awesome. The tradition that goes along with the University of Notre Dame is like no other. Fans of Notre Dame don’t need to dress like leprechauns one day every year…they can do it every day.
