Leinster beat Connacht 41-12 on New Yr’s Day on the RDS
Leinster have apologised after the Wolfe Tones music ‘Celtic Symphony’ was performed following Sunday’s win over Connacht on the RDS.
The music options the lyric “Ooh Ah, Up the Ra!” in reference to the IRA.
It has been reported the music was pale out after one verse and refrain as gamers did a lap of honour.
“A music was performed over the PA on the RDS Area this night that should not have been performed,” a Leinster spokesperson mentioned.
“Leinster Rugby has taken measures to make sure it would not occur once more and apologises sincerely for its use and for any offence triggered.”
The Republic of Eire girls’s soccer staff beforehand apologised after a video emerged of gamers singing the refrain of the identical music after qualifying for the World Cup.
Uefa fined the Soccer Affiliation of Eire 20,000 euros after the sport at Hampden Park in October, and described the incident as “a violation of the essential guidelines of first rate conduct”.
