Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  A day to celebrate all things Irish by wearing green, drinking Guinness, and embracing your inner leprechaun. Republic of Ireland and Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given took a moment to embrace his inner leprechaun on twitter saying, “Happy St. Patricks Day everyone, hope you all have a great day.”

The 38-year-old took a quick snapshot of himself with a leprechaun hat, green shirt, and ginger beard.

Given has been forced into a backup role to American Abroad Brad Guzan but was handed the reins for Villa’s FA Cup campaign.  The Claret and Blue Army have marched to Wembley for the FA Cup semifinal where they will face Liverpool or Blackburn on April 18/19.
