What does it mean to be Irish?

Finally, in song form. Set to the tune of We Didn’t Start the Fire.

ANY SONG ABOUT Ireland that mentions Anne Doyle in the first line is alright by us.

Telly presenter Eoghan McDermott has penned four minutes worth of lyrics set to the tune of Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start the Fire.

Our favourite bits (subject to change):

We’ve got the best news readers and sexy leaders…
Economy – half dead, Uachtarán with baldy head…
6 o clock, stop the chores, Angelus, it’s time to pause…
