Boston Irish fans often refer to themselves as „Leprechauns“, the name derived from the team's nickname, „Leprechauns“. The fanbase is large and generally loyal, and virtually all home matches sell out. Like all major Ice Hockey clubs, Boston Irish have a number of domestic supporters' clubs, including the „Irish Supporters Club“, which works closely with the club. The Boston Irish Supporters' Trust promotes greater participation in ownership of the club by fans. The club's supporters also publish fanzines such as „Fight for Your Life“. In addition to the usual Ice Hockey chants, supporters sing „The Fields of Athenry“ and „Come on you Boys in Green“.
