Well Ireland's Call isn't actually our national anthem, Amhrán na bhFiann is. However at rugby matches Ireland's call also gets played along with the anthem. People want to change Amhrán na bhFiann though, due to it's militant nature and anti-British tone.

Ahhh intriguing. Thank you for clearing that one up!!

(Mae hen wlad fy nhadau is also quite anti-English in parts, although its done quite poetically, so no-one really cares!!)

No problem, it can be quite confusing at times. It's because the rugby team represents the whole island of Ireland. Amhran na bhFiann was deemed inappropriate because it is the official national anthem of the Republic of Ireland and because of the Nationalist theme of it. I have to say though, I do like Ireland's Call, especially when you are in the middle of the crowd watching the match! goodjob  Oh and the guy who wrote it lives across the road from me. Wink

goodjob   Went-a-looking after I'd seen your comments and have watched first half - but have swapped to West Wing now - typing in adverts!  Keep me posted on score please.  hug


Sorry, couldn't watch the second half, although did watch thelast 5 mins.  england were 21-18 up and Wales pushing for a penalty or drop toeven it up.  England caught the ball then ran and scored.  Didn't bother with the conversion so it was 26-18.  Would post the Under 19 score but the result wasn't good so I won't Razz
