National Anthem

Postby adogap » 13 Jan 2016 17:02

It had never occurred to me until reading todays paper that England did not have a National Anthem and normally the UK anthem was sang when English teams were representing their country at sporting events. I’m not especially keen on the Northern Ireland anthem, Londonderry Air / Danny Boy (and certainly not the Daniel O’Donnell version!)
I cannot resist standing to attention for ‘La Marseillaise’, and do so every time I watch the film ‘Casablanca’. My favourite version is sang by Mireille Mathieu.
It would be interesting to hear which country you think has a great anthem and what great music should be used to represent England

............. I love our Rugby Anthem 'Ireland's Call' more acceptable as the Irish Anthem at Rugby games rather than Amhrán na bFhiann which is strictly the anthem for the ROI!

There is something about Flower of Scotland, love it, especially just before the rugby vs England. I am all ready for them to smash the English. :mrgreen:
