Chat with Notre Dame's Leprechaun

Auto Update: Off

Notre Dame adopted the Leprechaun as mascot in 1965.
Welcome to The Show! Happy St. Patrick's Day! On Tuesday, we'll have the Notre Dame Leprechaun, Juan Muldoon, stopping by to celebrate all things green and Irish.

Muldoon, a senior, was named the varsity Leprechaun last spring, after spending two years as the junior varsity mascot.

According to Notre Dame's Web site, the Leprechaun became the school's official mascot in 1965. It took the place of Irish terrier dogs, which had been the school's mascot since 1930. The Notre Dame logo features a side view of the figure with his dukes up, ready to battle anyone that comes his way, while the live version is a student, chosen annually at tryouts, dressed in a cutaway green suit and Irish country hat.

Send in your questions now, then join Muldoon on Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET!
