As Ireland kicked-off their Rugby World Cup against Romania on Saturday, some fans that clearly don’t ever watch Ireland ever play matches are confused as to why Ireland’s national anthem wasn’t played before the Romania game.
For Ireland’s away matches Ireland’s Call is played instead of Amhrán na bhFiann because the Irish rugby team is an all island team. See what this guy had to say below..
It’s not a team from the Republic of Ireland.
