Ireland's Call

Ireland's Call is a song used in international Rugby matches, and is played when the Irish team is playing. The Irish anthem Amhrán na bhFiann was deemed to be inappropriate as it did not represent all the players, the teams being made up from people both from Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

It was written by Phil Coulter, who was commissioned by the IRFU to write an anthem in 1995.

Ireland's Call

 Come the day and come the hour
 Come the power and the glory
 We have come to answer
 Our Country's call
 From the four proud provinces of Ireland 

 Ireland, Ireland,
 Together standing tall
 Shoulder to shoulder
 We'll answer Ireland's call 

 From the mighty Glens of Antrim
 From the rugged hills of Galway
 From the walls of Limerick
 And Dublin Bay
 From the four proud provinces of Ireland 


 Hearts of steel
 And heads unbowing
 Vowing never to be broken
 We will fight, until
 We can fight no more
 From the four proud provinces of Ireland
