I find it most upsetting to see Ireland's Call being criticised by those who think that the Soldier's Song should be the only anthem representing the Ireland rugby team. Granted, it may not have the gravitas and divine ecstacy of Nessun Dorma, but Coulter deserves huge praise for composing a song that represents the people from "four proud provinces of Ireland". I doubt there are more than a handful of Unionists who contribute to this website, but I would love to see their views expressed. I have some connections north of the border with people of a moderate unionist persuasion, and they are, to a man, very fond of I.C. Recently, I was at a funeral near Lisburn and was struck by how many of the kids attending the aftermath in the local hotel were wearing Ireland and Ulster jerseys. But down here, I sense a deep sectarian bigotry on the part of those who want AMhran na Bfiann or nothing. Who are these people? Are they genuine rugby fans? Has rugby been part of the tapestry of their lives, as it has with mine? Surely it is only a small minority that holds this warped view of a genuine attempt to come up with words that truly represent both traditions on this island?
