London, June 13 (ANI): An Ireland soccer fan has become a worldwide Internet phenomenon after he was snapped licking a Croatian cailin’s boob.
And student Eamon Keegan on Tuesday night promised to repeat his antics if given the chance against Ireland’s next Euro 2012 opponents Spain.
“I’d be letting the country down if I didn’t!” the Sun quoted him as saying.
The UCD undergraduate was caught on camera snuggling up to a laughing woman’s cleavage at the Boys in Green’s opening match on Sunday.
Within hours his breast efforts had gone viral online helped by Ireland players and Italy ace Mario Balotelli.
“It’s funny, I didn’t open my mouth to the women, well apart from once obviously! he said.
“People are calling me a legend, even Sean St Ledger who scored the goal,” he said.
The Ireland defender St Ledger praised the 20-year-old’s antics, on Twitter.
“Randy, horny, very excited man!” he tweeted.
“That pic is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen!” he wrote on twitter.
Bowled-over Keegan added: “It has been unbelievable and a bit ridiculous. I had a good few pints on me when it happened.
“The women were walking through the crowd and people started chanting “get your t**s out for the lads.
“So they did and I just jumped in the picture. I don’t know what came over me!” he said.
The busty women were also photographed in Poznan having their breasts fondled by a scruffy fellow Croatia fan.
Tesco worker Keegan, who played for Shamrock Rovers’ youth sides, will travel to Gdansk for the Spain game on Thursday.
Keegan is all charged up for a repeat performance if he gets another chance.
“Ah yeah, I suppose I’d have to, it would be rude not to,” he said.
But he admitted: “When the picture went viral I got the shock of my life.
“The first thing I thought of was my mother.
“I was afraid she would see it. So, I texted her first thing yesterday to tell her I was sorry,” he said.
In Sallins, Co Kildare, on Tuesday, his mother Barbara said: “I could not believe it. I was shocked that Eamonn would do something like that. Did these girls ask him to do it?
“When I saw the photo first, I thought they were fake things and that he did it for the craic, and then I thought, oh God, I hope he’s not drinking too much.
“My eldest daughter, Aisling, who is in Australia, first told me that Eamon is all over the internet. Eamon then texted me to say he was sorry,” she said.
Barbara said that she told her son not to worry, as people would eventually forget the whole incident.
“I told him not to worry about it. I didn’t want to upset him. I told him it will be forgotten about tomorrow,” she said.
“We had Joxer in Stuttgart, and now we’ve Eamon in Poznan!” she said.
Younger brother Killian, 16, is also proud of his breast-licking brother.
“Sean St Ledger even sent me a tweet to say ‘your brother is a legend. I hope he doesn’t have a girlfriend’,” he added.
And Balotelli tweeted to say “Irish fan has the right idea for the Euros.” (ANI)
