    Hi All

    my query is as per the thread title. The music played today (guitar riff) when the Irish players enter the pitch? I've heard it before somewhere either at an American Football match or in a movie. Any ideas?

    It's been used as the entrance theme in a lot of countries, and over a lot of sports..... The FAI use it too.

    Leinster used to use it as the background music when announcing their team before matches too.
