"Great source for information and conversation with like minded fans. Good debate without trolls and instigators. Social aspect unrivaled by any other group, from group merchandise to face to face get togethers on a regular basis. The Legion is an online version of an olden days fan club that met weekly. 10 / 10 on the quality scale. GO IRISH!"

"It’s a family of like minded fans. The tailgating is excellent for everyone from first timers to lifelong South Bend residents. We went to our first White Field tailgate a couple years ago and were welcomed immediately. We returned again this year and met all the friends that we made."

"Legion of the Leprechaun is what sportsmanship is all about. These kids who are playing for our beloved ND need our support through both our wins and losses. My kids and I met some of the Legion at the blue and gold game, and they treated us like family. This is what it’s all about coming together from all walks of life to do one thing and support our favorite team. Go IRISH!"

"By far the best ND group out there. Couldn’t ask for a better group of people that all share a common love for the Irish but also isn’t filled with all the constant complainers and negativity! But the best part about this group is how welcoming they are when you meet them in person at the Legion tailgates! My wife and I are both new to the group but they have welcomed us in and we have found our spot at every game going forward! Hope to see some new faces at the NC tailgate and Go Irish!"

"The coolest thing to me about Legion of the Leprechaun is how they have gone nationwide! I'm down in Texas so I don't get to interact with a whole lot of fan base. Legion has provided me that opportunity! I'm forever grateful to be apart of the group!"

"I love this group. The fact you expect members to follow the rules and guidelines and enforce said rules is refreshing. It gets old constantly reading nothing but negativity and coach bashing. I understand opinions differ but being able to discuss these differences, and not belittle one another, is nice. Being able to read about all things Notre Dame is GREAT!! Keep up the good work!"

"I love the fact that everyone on this page is so positive and supportive of our IRISH! I have been a fan for well over 50 years. I’ve been through the ups and downs and it’s a wonderful thing to be able to interact with other fans that love Notre Dame as much as I do. The fact that we can all celebrate together just makes my heart happy."

"I have been an ND fan since the womb lol! This page is BY FAR the best, most positive, encouraging, real page I have ever been a part of in my many years on Facebook. I say that honestly and truly. Not only do we support our Irish, but we support eachother, without even ever knowing anyone on a personal level. Not for me anyway. The amount of genuine care and love we have for each other as Notre Dame fans is astounding to me and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of such a wonderful group! We are not only Leprechauns, but WE ARE NOTRE DAME! And as always, GO IRISH!"

"This is a group of loyal ND fans who live and support the spirit of ND. It’s more than a fan page. It’s about all ND athletics and sharing opinions and experiences in respectful ways. It’s about family, supporting one another as we have a common denominator. I have made lifelong friends, prayed for members I never met and rejoiced in the birth of new babies born to the ND family. The administrators are fair and consistent in controlling what is posted, which makes this THE BEST group to follow and be part of. If you want to be part of something unique, respectful and full of ND love, there is nothing better than LEGION!"
