Clashmore Mike – Dublin to Dome
Notre Dame’s famed leprechaun has rallied fans for decades, but the leprechaun wasn’t the first mascot to help the team shake down the thunder…
Clashmore Mike, a spunky Irish Terrier originally given as a gift to Knute Rockne, inspired and entertained fans for more than 40 years before the leprechaun. From 1924 to 1965, Clashmore Mike’s antics on and off the field brought the team more than luck – the little terriers had a better record than any other mascot in college football.
Dublin to Dome is a sequel to Clashmore Mike Comes Home. An old terrier in the Irish village of Clashmore recalls how he accidentally joined a family emigrating to America in 1924 and wound up as the original mascot of Fighting Irish football.
Clashmore Mike Comes Home
