Defrocked Irish priest dressed as a leprechaun turns up outside UK Supreme Court

Neil Horan, an infamous Irish priest known for running onto the 2003 British Grand Prix and 2004 Summer Olympics men's marathon, is at it again.

This time Mr Horan, who is a defrocked Irish Roman Catholic priest, has turned up outside the Supreme Court in the UK, dressed as a leprechaun, where currently there is a case being argued by the British Government against a recent decision by the court to allow MP's have a say in the triggering of article 50.

Mr Horan was filmed outside the Supreme Court, dancing, while holding up two signs, one said: “Nigel Farage was sent by Christ to get Britain out of Europe and fulfill bible prophecy.”
