HERE IS IRELAND’S official song for the upcoming European Championships in France.

Chosen ahead of a number of entries, Seo Linn caught the eye of FAI CEO John Delaney after their performance on the Easter Rising special Centenary.

Lead singer and co-writer with the band Stiofán O Fearail said that he was shocked when he was asked by the football boss to do the Irish piece:

“I honestly could not believe what I was hearing, but John had absolute faith in us to come up with a song, which he said should be an uplifting piece for the team as they head to the European Championship tournament.”

The song includes clips of the Irish side’s journey to the finals in France and ends with a touching tribute to Bill O’Herlihy.

The band will perform the song at Ireland’s friendly with the Netherlands on Friday, the last game before they head to a pre-tournament training camp.

It will be available to download through iTunes and Google Play from Friday.
