Irish Fans Show Off Their Singing Skills To Baby On Bordeaux Train

Fans' awful behavior plagues Euro 2016, but Irish supporters stand a class apart.

Irish supporters seem to be on the roll during the Euro 2016 soccer tournament.

First they interrupted a reporter on live TV and lifted him on their shoulder following a one-all draw between Ireland and Sweden.

Next they serenaded a French woman in Bordeaux, and now they have been seen singing a lullaby to a baby.

Soon after their team’s 3-0 win against Belgium, a group of Irish fans on a Bordeaux train were seen singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” to a child, as his parents watched in amazement.

The baby also seemed to have enjoyed the impromptu performance as he did not make any noise, or seem agitated in the least.

After singing the popular nursery rhyme, the men then went on to “Hush Little Baby Don’t You Cry,” followed by lots of laughter. The father held the baby firmly in his lap, while the Irish supporters standing around him took it upon themselves to keep the child entertained.

At the end of it all, one of the Irish fans apologized to the young parents for being a noisy group, but they didn’t seem to mind as they smiled on.

The video is quite heartwarming, and shows an instant connection between the child, his parents and the Irish supporters, who were full of life at that moment.
