You don't think that fans are capable of adopting a song with real relevance and history if the context and tradition- passed great, etc. Is explained? Don't buy that.

Two wrongs don't make a right.
In fact perhaps what might be more appropriate would be for Munster to replace the field with the isle as a means of remembering one of their great legends.

There are no wrongs there at all; just an illustration of the fact there's no reason, other than the valid one of taste, to say we couldn't or shouldn't pick the song as a more suitable alternative to Ireland's Call.

But I suspect the multiplicity of 'reasons' is really an unease at a Munster-connected song being adopted. Pity.

No, the unease is because its a very poor idea.


Its not just a Munster song btw, its also the Coolmine club song and I wouldn't be surpised if there were other clubs out there in Ireland and Scotland who use it

Irony of that is the whole point of Irelands Call is that it represents all 4 provinces

Like it or not its not getting changed

To echo Donny the red AF shirts were a nice touch today

Really??? Well, if it's that bad an idea you better offer something other than that weak as milky tea Coolmine alibi.

BTW, definitive provenance and all that stuff, didn't stop Munster, then Liverpool robbing Pete St John's "Fields" on its right province/ club. A good song in context is a good song in context.

Don't get po-faced or preachy; you're easily the least entitled to do that here. But I think my point is made.

A fine tribute to a great man. Good for them.
