Kirby Smart leads No. 3 Georgia against No. 7 Notre Dame.

Irish Spring joins Twitter, has hilarious response to Georgia grocery store troll ahead of Georgia football-Notre Dame

At the start of this week, Irish Spring didn’t even have a Twitter account. But after a Georgia grocery store pulled all of its Irish Spring soap ahead of Georgia’s big game against Notre Dame, it decided it had to get in on the fun.

On Friday morning, the day before No. 3 Georgia takes on No. 7 Notre Dame, the account tweeted out that it was sending some Irish Spring to Athens “for a little luck.” This was the second-ever tweet by the company, with the first coming on Thursday night.

Earlier in the week, a Dill’s Food City in Royston, Ga. — about 30 miles north of Athens — posted on its Facebook page that there would be no Irish Spring in their stores this week. The Facebook post went viral, as these kind of antics are part of what make college football great.
