There's international friendly football tonight as Ireland take on Wales, and as the home side stood to attention to sing their national anthem, they were greeted by the stirring opening notes of Amhran na bhFiann instead.

Not exactly what you expect to hear when you're lining up in your home stadium, but the traveling Irish contingent gave it what might well be the biggest cheer of the night.

To be fair, Amhran na bhFiann is a belter of a tune, they should have just played it twice anyway.
