Ireland gets new national anthem !!

Spread the love!

Kalle Ryan and Enda Roche of the Brown Bread Mix tape night up in Dubland entered and won a competition run by The Irish Times to find a new anthem for the auld sod, Ireland that is, not Bertie Ahern. The judges were Neil Hannon (Ex of The Divine Comedy) with some fat bloke who now call themselves 'The Terry Duckworth Trio' or some such.
Anyways I thinks this is a fabuloso chant and me and the rest of the Castle entourage have been belting it out all day.

If we'd had this earlier, Thierry handball Henry wouldn't have dared carry the ball to his pal to put in the net and we'd have gone on to win the world cup.

Love it! I'm singing it! I'm gonna share it!

Magnificent on so many levels.
1. I learnt the chorus straight away.
2. I thought the interjection of Maori was an inspired touch.
3. The video does exactly what the song says on the tin.

I'm suspecting it'll be back to the glory days of Eurovision next year for you.

Thanks Argent, my English isn't great, my Irish is almost non existent!!The first bit 'Conas a ta tu' is 'How are you'? the reply is 'I'm grand' then something something 'I don't know'is the reply and... I can't remember what the rest of the song is! Doh, I'll get back to ye!

'Ireland Ireland Ireland fughin Ireland
My blood is boiling for Ireland'
