Wexford Choir celebrate historic Irish win
Ireland’s historic victory over New Zealand was celebrated in some style by an Irish choir belting out our national rugby song.
The Wexford Festival Opera Chorus performed a rousing version of the country’s rugby anthem, with their unfortunate Kiwi member sitting in the middle just waiting for it all to end.
Ireland’s Call was written by Phil Coulter and is sang before every Irish rugby game. It is a wonderful moment with players and fans from both north and south of the border standing side by side with Irish pride.
Ireland made history with an incredible 40-29 victory over the three-time world champions. It was their first ever win over the All Blacks after more than a hundred years of trying.
After the scintillating Irish performance, the Wexford Choir celebrated in style.
One of their members is from New Zealand, so they sat him down on a chair and the Irish contingent sang Ireland’s Call to him to really rub some salt in the wounds.
The clip was uploaded online and is gathering some great support from proud Irish rugby fans.
Take a look for yourself.
