    That is a real coincidence about him being from Dublin Ohio. His Irish credentials are in no doubt then.

    Can't help you about the name, but would be interested to know the answer myself too.

    Was it Broncomania's own Frenchie who founded ND?

        The name has never been perfectly explained.

        One tale has the nickname originating at halftime of the Notre Dame-Michigan game in 1909. With his team trailing, one Notre Dame player yelled to his teammates - who had names like Dolan, Kelly, Glynn, Duffy and Ryan - "What's the matter with you guys? You're all Irish and you're not fighting worth a lick." Notre Dame came back to win the game and the press, after overhearing the remark, reported the game as a victory for the "Fighting Irish."

        The most generally accepted explanation is that the press coined the nickname as a characterization of Notre Dame athletic teams, their never-say-die fighting spirit and the Irish qualities of grit, determination and tenacity. The term likely began as an abusive expression tauntingly directed toward the athletes from the small, private, Catholic institution.

          Seriously, Notre Dame is a cathedral in paris. paris, france. So why does a school named after a church in france have an irishman as its mascot?

          Those explanations were pretty good NASurfer
          Superintendent Chalmers: "Thank the Lord"? That sounded like a prayer. A prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts don't have a place within an organized religion."
