Why ‘Ireland’s Call’ is the Unofficial Anthem for Irish Rugby

The popular song ‘Ireland’s Call’ went down in the annals of history when the Irish Rugby Football Union officially declared it as the official rugby anthem for Ireland. Since then, the song has been adopted by Ireland’s Korfball team, hockey team, cricket and the A1GP teams.

Political Significance

For those who are unaware, the team for the Irish is made up of players from both the north and the sort, but the team represents the island on an international level. This is quite different from soccer, which comprises of two separate teams which represent Northern and the Republic of Ireland. For other sports, teams may comprise of members from almost any part of the island.


These facts are significant for the song itself. Even though Ireland’s official anthem is ‘The Soldier’s Song’, it is sensitive for those who have Unionist sympathies in Northern Ireland. This is similar to Northern Ireland’s national anthem which is ‘God Save the Queen’ and which is favoured by those who have nationalist sympathies. All rugby matches are played in the Republic of Ireland and both ‘Ireland’s Call’ and ‘The Soldier’s Song’ are sung. After the first verse is sung, it is followed by a chorus which is also sung in the same key and then repeated in a higher note at the end.

The song came into being in 1995 and was created by Phil Coulter in a bid to merge different Irish accents. The song was first broadcast in the Kelly Show in Northern Ireland and in the Late Late Show in the Republic of Ireland by Andrew Strong. Coulter also re-wrote the lyrics for the Celtic Thunder tour and made it more martial with lines like ‘till our final requiem spoken’.


Since its origin, ‘Ireland’s Call’ has been the subject of heated debates, both in regards to its alleged political roots and the quality of its verses. This is quite apparent during the Rugby World Cup, the only time when team Ireland plays matches that take them away from home soil. During the 2007 match against England, even the commentators couldn’t help but talk about the song and its apparent influence on the on-field action. ‘Ireland’s Call’ was belted out with such hair-raising intensity that there wasn’t a dry eye left in the stadium at the end.

With RWC 2015 just around the corner, the song is bound to become a staple anthem during the matches. The game has played a major role in bringing people from every part of the island together even during times of political strife and upheavals. Songs like this one serve as the much needed glue that can overcomes boundaries and unify a nation like nothing else can.


Sing your heart out and cheer for your favourite teams down at Trinity Bar Venue. Besides live entertainment, we have an assortment of the best vintages Irish wineries have on offer along with mouth watering dishes that will not disappoint your pallet.

‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’ – Rousing Rugby Anthem or an Ode to Slavery?

If you are a rugby fan, then you must be pretty familiar with the unofficial anthem of the sport, Swing Low Sweet Chariot. It might get your blood pumping and make the game more exciting, but did you know that the song has roots in slavery? It was actually created by African slaves way back when slavery was accepted and was adopted by England’s supporters when it was sung at Twickenham in 1988 by a couple of schoolboys during the Five Nations Cup.



A few rugby club members claim that they were the ones who started the trend; apparently, one of them started singing the song during the same match which was picked up by the crowd. However, if the former version is true then this makes the situation quite controversial due to its link with slavery. Allegedly the schoolboys sung Swing Low to mock Chris Oti, an African American rugby player. Perhaps a look at the song’s history will shed more light on the controversy.

Origins of ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’

‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’ is considered an iconic song and was placed in the National Archives of the Library of Congress due to its apparent historical value. Recognised as the ‘song of the century’ by recording industries when it was rendered in 1909 by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, it has been covered by almost every musician to date. The history is a bit cloudy, but historians agree that it has its roots in slavery and was composed by slaves to give them hope of a better future.


However, some are of the opinion that the song was actually a coded message that offered escape plans and even maps that the slaves could use to escape. This was similar to the song ‘Wade in the Water’ another rugby anthem that allegedly taught slaves how to evade bloodhounds when they were escaping. Similarly, the lyrics of ‘Follow The Drinking Gourd’ provided a detailed map that lead North to freedom; the refrain comprised of specific directions such as following the Big Dipper and several lyrics such as ‘the river ends between two hills’ showed them how to reach specific landmarks.


The song was written by Wallas Willis, a freed African American slave who was inspired by the Red River since it reminded him of the Biblical river that took Prophet Elijah to the heavens on a chariot. However, regardless of its origin, the song has been sung by rugby players and fans for decades and even during drinking games. It is mostly favoured by English supporters since the schoolboys who allegedly made it popular in-game were seated there and would sing whenever a try was scored.


The rest as they say, is history. Despite its depressing origins, ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’ is still sung in rugby houses, pubs and during drinking games. If you are in search of a sports bar that has the best food, great people and sports fans galore, then you need to visit Trinity Bar Venue.
