Watch: Irish fans sing lullabies for baby on French train

Monday June 20th, 2016

Irish soccer fans have been the unsung heroes of the Euro 2016.

Amid some acts of violence, Ireland’s supporters have been a (mostly) cheery bunch, and seemingly love to sing at every opportunity.

First, some Irish fans got together with Swedish fans for a rendition of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen.” Then they turned the “Our Father” chant into a soccer chant for a nun. And now, Irish fans are helping put babies to sleep by singing lullabies on trains.

That’s honestly not a bad way to doze off.
