FOR IRISH RUGBY fans, 2016 and New Zealand will always be associated.

Of course, after the historic win in Chicago, they came back to Dublin and beat us – but all told the series will live long in the memory. And even though there was some controversy, both sets of players will probably look back on the games with a degree of fondness.

So when Galway man Alan Boyle ran into the All Blacks on holiday in Germany, they simply had to belt out Ireland’s Call together

Giving it socks.

Alan told that he was working in Finnegan’s bar in Nuremberg on Monday night when a group of New Zealand players arrived in:

They were playing a few drinking games and when they spotted one of our other bartenders wearing his Munster shirt they brought him in to take part. Absolute gentlemen.

He also wrote on Facebook:

One of the most amazing things I’ve ever been a part of. Singing Ireland’s Call with some of the All Blacks that Ireland got their first ever victory over just 3 weeks ago. So much respect shown. A group of complete gentlemen. I’ll never forget it.

Star man Israel Dagg even threw on a special Euro 2016 Ireland t-shirt for the whole night.

What an evening.
