Welcome to IRISH CREED

Welcome to IRISH CREED, a blog created by three Domers who seek to celebrate the University of Notre Dame and share our unique perspectives with all members of the Notre Dame Family.

The words "Fighting Irish" are a testament to the indomitable spirit that has persisted at Notre Dame throughout history. To revive that spirit in full, new head football coach Brian Kelly recently created "The Irish Creed" to guide Notre Dame football into the future. As described in an article by ESPN's Mark Schlabach, The Creed boldly states: "The pride and tradition of Notre Dame football will not be left to the weak, timid, or non-committed."

The "Irish Creed" now holds a prominent place on a wall inside the football locker room, and we hope it will soon come to hold a prominent place in the hearts of all those who are proud to call themselves members of the Notre Dame Family.  We see "Irish Creed" as a fitting title for our blog because we intend to create a collective statement of faith through our discussion of all things Notre Dame.  Most importantly, we chose the name to represent the fact that we simply believe in the greatness of our university.

At Irish Creed, our mission is to provide in-depth information along with insightful commentary, personal stories, long-forgotten histories, as well as inspiring photos, poetry & artwork.  We will offer the Fighting Irish faithful a window into Notre Dame through our own perspectives as recent students and graduates.

tendomer:  "I am a 2010 Notre Dame grad, and as a student I was co-president of the Leprechaun Legion, the student section for Notre Dame basketball.  The 2008 Sheraton Hawai'i Bowl was the only home, away, or neutral site football game during my time at ND that I did not attend. Woe the timing."

FightinIrish1313:  "I will be a 2011 graduate of the University of Notre Dame, and will be taking over as President of the Leprechaun Legion during my senior year.  I’ve only missed 2 away football games since I’ve been a student (both wins) and have never witnessed a National Championship for the Irish. My Grandfather was a 1949 Graduate of Notre Dame and my Father graduated in 1980. Both were secretaries for their head football coaches (Leahy and Devine) during their time as students. I’ve got one more year to cheer on a National Championship while I’m a student, or my family will disown me for breaking our streak."

TheNDleprechaun:  "I am a proud native of Buffalo, NY who graduated from Notre Dame in 2010 and I will be attending Notre Dame Law School as part of the entering Class of 2013.  In 2009-2010, I had the honor of serving as the official Fighting Irish Leprechaun.  My time as one of the foremost leading symbols of the Fighting Irish was an unforgettable experience that I hope will bring excitement to IRISH CREED."

We hope you enjoy our upcoming posts and we invite you to come back often.  GO IRISH!


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere! We will definitely have the Leprechaun over this summer for a burger and a beer, and to talk football and blogging. And maybe law school too.

  2. First off, great start with this blog. I like it so far, it is a nice variety of perspectives. If you google Irish Creed though, the first couple of links are for Irish Creed cologne. Wondering if any of you guys have heard of it/tried it.

  3. Haha hadn't heard of the cologne.

  4. Personally, I don't leave the house without it.
