It's not the first time the model has shown her support for sport in the area, as she previously tweeted her support to a Cork school for winning an All-Ireland championship back in 2018.

She’s no stranger to the pubs either – she described herself as “more of a Smithwick's or Bulmer's girl than a pint of Guinness” in an interview with the Sunday Independenta few years’ back – and is a visitor of Doheny & Nesbitt's pub on Baggot Street in Dublin.

Since the Bantry-based sport team is practically a part of Emily's "home away from home", we're sure they are very happy to be getting the international, superstar support.
