Music to Irish ears – Ireland 24 England 8
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.
