Eamon Keegan showed he had all the moves up front when becoming a Twitter sensation after his performance in Poznan with a female Croatian fan. Let’s hope the Irish team copy his scoring abilities and give Spain a licking in their Group C qualifier on Thursday night.
The 20-year-old became a social media legend when he was snapped licking the breast of a female Croatia supporter (pictured) at the game which Ireland lost 3-1. We think the picture nicely sums up those heady days. It’s also a nice celebration of The Breast, one of life’s purest pleasures.

The picture has gone down a storm, not surprisingly, on social media with Ireland defender Sean St Ledger doing his bit to get it trending. St Ledger tweeted yesterday: “So I’ve been told his name is
#eamonnkeegantheguywholickedacroatsbreast let’s get him trending!”
Kildare man Keegan was initially worried his mam would be mortified but she told The Irish Daily Star: “He was walking through when the girls lifted their tops, hopefully it will all be forgotten about in the morning.
“He’s usually so quiet. I looked at it on the computer myself and said: ‘Oh My God!” Ah, god bless mammies.
We hope Mr Keegan’s enthusiasm spurs on his nation against Spain. Spain’s female fans: you have been warned.
And, let’s just add: Eamon Keegan for Taoiseach. The lads on Joe.ie spoke to Mr Keegan and have their take on events here.
