I'm with Percy, it's not much of a tune, but then very few national anthems are.
It's not like Amhran ha bhfiann is a cracking tune either, it's just that people feel connected to it.

Ireland's Call means very little to very many.

I'm not a proper rugby fan, yes, but jesus. You'd swear Paul O'Connell died the way people are writing and posting about him.

Can't believe the game is on at 4 over here, and I work Sundays.
Steaming in work could be the only answer

I would be. I'm saying that with in 2 years he'll have to retire. We've had a player have to retire due to concussions. One player left us, played for another year and then retired dues to his concussions. Other then the concussions the two lads were fit and healthy.
