England fan gran, 66, covers her entire house including the ROOF in 41 St George flags to mark Euro 2020


A FOOTBALL mad gran has decked her house in 41 England flags to mark Euro 2020.

Mary Fannon, 66, even has two flags on the roof of her home in Manchester.

The grandma-of-nine rolls out the patriotic display for every big international tournament.

She describes the 41 flag and bunting display as "a bit of fun and banter" for her grandkids and other neighbouring youngsters to enjoy.

Mary, who's lived in her home for 20 years, said: "We always do it for the Euros and the World Cup.

"It's only for the football and the kids love it. In fact everyone around here loves it."

The spectacle took her grandsons Alex, 22, and Lesley,27, a full day to complete.

The flags cover the front wall, windows, fencing, and roof, with even the garden getting a white and red makeover.

Manchester United fan Mary believes England stand a good chance in Euro 2020, hoping her favourite player, Marcus Rashford will be a key component.

"I think it will really spice things up a bit if we bring it home" she adds.
