Ireland captain Seamus Coleman is widely regarded in the football community, and it is little wonder why. The Killybegs native plays with passion in the blue of Everton and green of Ireland, but there are countless stories of his generosity and all-round sound persona off the field.
Today, Everton have released a heartwarming video profiling two Irish Everton fans, one of whom suffers from autism, who were helped by Coleman to come over and visit Goodison Park.
In August, Eoin Mulligan bought his friend Francis a jersey with Wayne Rooney on the back in August. The video went viral, amassing almost half a million views.
The club then got in touch to invite the duo to a match. Unfortunately, Francis became unwell and they were unable to make the game.
However, Seamus Coleman reached out, and helped them back to the Merseyside club by donating €2,000.
This video was posted by Everton today highlighting their experience, and it has been receiving a huge reaction.
