Republic of Ireland U-17 Head Coach Colin O’Brien with Clara Hogan, Scoil Mhuire, Barntown, County Wexford and her winning mascot design,  Barry the Bodhran

Meet Barry the Bodhran

He may look a bit GAA, but Barry is in fact the winning mascot design – following a nationwide classroom search – for the 2019 UEFA Under-17 European Championships being held here from May 3-19 .

Nice one Ted.

    Looks like a good design, but i’m slightly concerned with the image of this guy walking around the pitch bashing himself in the face to get the crowd going

    What do you call a guy who hangs around with musicians? A drummer.

    Well done to the creator. Kinda Jimmy Magee-like in appearance so it resonates. But “bodhran” doesn’t travel.

    Black shamrocks? Was there a hunger strike?

    Any why isn’t it a woman mascot?

        Aren’t you a drummer scottser? I’m not sure why, but I seem to have it in my noggin that you are.

        What’s the difference between a drummer and a drum machine?

        You only have to punch the information into the machine once.
