Best-selling author of the Robert Langdon series of novels, Dan Brown, appears to have included a tirade against Irish football fans in his latest offering, Origin.
Once the passage, in which two of Martin O’Neill’s Tipsy Green Army enter a pub and behave loutishly, came to light, the Hibernian public was quick to respond. So intense did the backlash become that Ryan Tubridy, an RTE Radio 1 host, ended up debating the passages it on his show.
All things considered, it’s probably just a case of an American being stereotypically off-the-mark when it comes to football, rather than a sincere grudge against the Boys in Green.
Still, it’s all quite amusing. See for yourself below
