Irish football superfan launches appeal after famous flag he has used for 35 years goes missing

REPUBLIC of Ireland superfan Davy Keogh has issued an appeal to help find the famous flag he has brought to games for more than 35 years.

Dubliner Davy, 57, has followed the boys in green around the world with his iconic ‘Davy Keogh Says Hello’ tricolour since the early 1980s.

Fans of Irish football will be very familiar with the flag, which can be seen regularly at Republic of Ireland and Bohemian matches.

But the iconic banner sadly went missing on Sunday night after Ireland’s 3-1 win over Uruguay at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Davy Keogh issued an plea on social media to help him find the flag he has had by his side for over three decades.

Davy’s local club Bohemians said on Twitter: "If you have any details of the ambulance, date, time, location etc, Direct Message us and I'll speak to the crew."
