    As the title says.
    Nobody bats an eyelid when we don't play it at away internationals, or at world cup, etc.
    Why do we persist with playing 2 anthems at home games? It just makes us look backward, uneducated, and stupid. Opponents must look at us and think WTF are these stupid pixies playing 2 anthems for?
    99.99% of those watching the match don't care, and the rest can get over themselves.
    Play Irelands Call (which I don't like as a song but meh) and get on with the rugby.

    Pixies, eh. Pixies. Mother Ireland is rearing them yet.
