  1. Low lie the Fields of Athenry
    Where once we watched the small free birds fly.
    Our love was on the wing
    we had dreams and songs to sing
    It’s so lonely ’round the Fields of Athenry.


  2. best sportsmen in the championship!

    our reporter (germany) was silent for several minutes just to listen to you sing. everybody on the german television had ~4minutes of uninterrupted irish fans. awesome! <3
    for the world championship, i'll get a green shirt 🙂 hope to see you there, can't beat the irish! first team to win 0-4

  3. i remember the play off match for euro 96 between ireland and holland. irish and dutch fans celebrating together, it was a synergy of song, alcohol and laughter
