LONDON-BORN four-year-old Ireland fan Cian Prendergast has become an internet sensation for his impressive rendition of Amhrán na bhFiann at Euro 2016.
As a season ticket holder at the Aviva Stadium and a member of the London branch of the Republic of Ireland Soccer Supporter’s Club (RISSC), Cian is strong contender for Ireland’s number one fan at the Euros.
Such were his exploits at the Sweden game in Paris, the youngster was picked up by the big screens inside Stade de France as well as featuring on BBC’s end credits after the game.
His father, Secretary of RISSC Martin Prendergast, is now on a mission to get the Ireland players to see his son’s passionate rendition of the national anthem ahead of Ireland’s last two group games against Belgium and Italy.
He told The Irish Post: “Cian's coming with me to the Italy game next week and he asked me if the players would see it, so I said I’d see what I can do!”
