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.
Georgia and Notre Dame kickoff at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night. It’s one of the biggest games of the season, as Notre Dame and Georgia have each made the College Football Playoff in recent seasons.
The Bulldogs and Irish last played in 2017, with the Bulldogs pulling out a memorable 20-19 win. ESPN’s College GameDay will be in Athens on Saturday to get things started at 9 a.m.
