Indiecater Records have released Sing Up For The Boys In Green, a compilation of Irish football-related songs dedicated to the Ireland squad heading over to Euro 2012.
Sing Up For The Boys In Green plays out chronologically, with John Aldridge’s frustrating altercation on the line at USA 1994 kicking off proceedings. The man who split a nation in 2002 features heavily for a couple of tracks and the jury appears to have sided with his nemesis. Once that national tragedy is out of the way it’s time to get down to the here and now. Everyone knows Ireland don’t have the most gifted of squads at the championships but no team will match them for passion, dedication and the will to win. This album is dedicated to their efforts.
