IRFU urged to play RoI National Anthem at Rugby World Cup

Independent Dublin City Councillor Neil Ring is apparently to table a motion calling on the IRFU to play the RoI National Anthem at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. At away matches only Ireland’s Call is played (and infamously the IRFU decreed that when Ireland played at Ravenhill it was an away fixture). Mr. Ring is confident of getting his motion passed: anticipating the support of FF, SF and independent councillors. According to Mr. Ring: “I would be very disappointed if it wasn’t passed. I think right-minded city councillors will vote for it…….I don’t see why the IRFU are still refusing to play it at away grounds. It gives the impression that Ireland’s Call is our national anthem.”
