So the time is upon us again, where large provencial towns roll out their latest Opera sensation to sing the Amhran na bhFiann as part of the pre-match ritual. Amhran na bhFiann translates into English as The Soldiers Song, this would imply to me that it should be sung as a rousing deep battle song and not a piercing warbling operatic ballad.
This is a thread to keep track of the various redenitions given at county grounds around the country with a view to award the TFK GAA Championship National Anthem Performance of the Year Award at the end of the championship.
Todays version in Donegal was particularly bad. I am giving the fat munter who murdered it 3/10.
I’ve always been impressed with our Nordie cousins regarding the singing of the national anthem, they sing it loud and proud with plenty of respect. Which is all the more impressive considering they live in a different country. Their lead should be followed.
Fucking sensational scenes in Pearse Stadium. The winner of the Connacht Scór Singing Competition belting out the anthem accompanied by some retard on a guitar sitting behind her. God bless the GAA. :lol:
