Very special fans deserve very special treatment. This’ll give you goosebumps.
Irish fans have been hailed as the best in the world this week, bringing fun and song wherever they go. As Martin O’Neill’s team prepare to take on Belgium in a crunch match in Bordeaux this Saturday live on RTÉ Player and RTÉ2 from 1pm (KO at 2pm), the fans are out in force singing their unique melodies on the streets and in the stands.
In this new video, conductor Gavin Murphy puts a unique classical spin on a medley of well known songs performed by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and New Dublin Voices. This collaboration between RTÉ Player, RTÉ Concert Orchestra and New Dublin Voices delivers orchestral takes on some classic football fan anthems including Put ’em under pressure! (We’re all part of Jackie’s Army), Come On You Boys in Green, #COYBIG, The Fields of Athenry and the sentimental Italia ‘90 favourite Nessun Dorma.
The full performance is available exclusively on RTÉ Player
