An early contender for Ireland’s Euro 2016 anthem has arrived

By Steve Neville

We wonder what Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane will make of this.

John Paul Wright has sent us this early contender to be the Republic of Ireland’s official Euro 2016 anthem.

John is from Kildare but now lives in Salzburg, Austria where he manages Murphy's Law Irish pub.

The die-hard fan, who is eagerly awaiting the trip to the Euros in France, wrote the song after the qualification game in Bosnia and it’s sung by John’s fellow Kildare man Tom Tuohy.

The video features John along with Brian O’Connor from Cork, Martin Weir from Tyrone, Mark Finegan from Meath and Stephen Murphy from Dublin, they’re hoping the video for ‘Dance In France’ inspires the Irish to a few wins in the summer

It will have you tapping your toes in anticipation for June 13 when Ireland kick off their Euro 2016 campaign against Sweden.

We hope Zlatan is prepared for the dancing Irish.
