After denting the roof of a car, the Irish lads were quick to repent with a chant of “fix the car, for the boys in green”. They stuffed money into the windows, and then even fixed the roof themselves.
Their car expertise seems to go on further than that, when a group of Irish lads stopped to change the tire of an elderly French couple.
