Shovin' Connie around the field


We are getting all patriotic in our class seeing as our big feast day is fast approaching. After reading that one quarter of Irish people cannot sing our National Anthem from start to finish
This number is further reduced when applied to our Rep of Ire football team at any international match.......
I decided it was time to increase the odds.

We all know the air of the song but the actual words are a bit hit and miss.
The title of this blog is not the last line of our anthem, contrary to popular opinion.

I was going over the words in class. First line
"Sinne Fianna Fáil."
There was immediate uproar.

"No miss, that's out of date. It should now be........
Sinne Fine Gael!

So, the question is.........what should we be singin'?
