Irish pub to give away free pints every time Harry Kane scores for England

A PUB in Harry Kane's ancestral homeland of Connemara will be giving away a free pint every time the England striker scores another goal at World Cup 2018.

The Spurs hitman has already bagged six goals in Russia and looks a sure bet for the Golden Boot award even if the Three Lions fail to win the competition.

Now, Molly's Bar in Letterfrack, Co. Galway - a popular haunt among Kane's Irish family - will be offering a free beer every time Harry adds to his World Cup haul.

The striker's dad Pat Kane was born a stone's throw away and his grandfather Michael John is even buried in Baunogues - the local cemetery in Letterfrack.

Harry’s cousins, Liz and Yvonne Kane are award-winning folk musicians who regularly perform at the pub as the fiddle-playing local act The Kane Sisters.

Damien Lyons, manager of Molly's, told the Irish Sun: "Anytime the family come back from England, their first stop will always be Molly’s for a few pints.

"Harry’s dad Pat, his brother Charlie, his uncles, cousins we know them all very well. They’ve been coming into us for donkeys years.

"So we said Ireland aren’t in the World Cup so we’ll make it interesting for the locals by doing a promotion.

"The closest person to us would be Harry so we said for every goal he scores we’ll throw on a free pint."

According to Damien, Kane has already won his cousins a number of beers each with his impressive scoring streak over the last week.

The England skipper has even sent a signed jersey over to Damien - which takes pride of place on a wall at the Connemara bar.

“Against Panama, there was an awful scatter of pints gave away because there was a good crowd in," Damien added.

“It’s great because we have good numbers coming in for the World Cup and people who wouldn’t normally support England are supporting England because of Harry.
