Irish fans found their singing voices tonight as Ireland chalked up a fantastic victory over England at rugby.

The Fields of Athenry – the adopted anthem of Irish fans for rugby and soccer – rang out across the Aviva stadium as Ireland pulled off their surprise win.

Our congratulations to the Irish team; commiserations to the English – but at least they got the chance to hear the Ireland fans sing some classic Irish songs to celebrate their victory.

The first try was scored by Tommy Bowe – who also sings a passable version of Black Velvet Band on special occasions.

The final score was Ireland 24 points with England only managing 8.
