Last week, it was Minnesota’s Goldy the Gopher getting enshrined in bronze. Today, it’s the Notre Dame Leprechaun that has received his own bust.
This morning, the university unveiled a new statue of the Fighting Irish mascot:

The statue will be located inside of Gate 10 in Purcell Pavilion. Per the Merck Family, whose donation made the statue come to life, “the mascot of the Leprechaun has symbolized the joy, determination, and fighting spirit of Notre Dame.”
