Watch: Christy Moore Whet The Appetite For Euro 2016 With A Late Late Rendition Of 'Joxer'

You know Euros fever is in full swing when Christy breaks out his classic anthem about Germany in the summer of 1988.

The song originally featured on Moore's 1994 recording, Live At The Point, but has taken on a life of its own in the intervening 22 years.

Lord knows it'll be broken out in nearly every pub in the country during the coming months, but it was great to see it get a rare, live airing on The Late Late Show on Friday night, even if Ryan Tubridy was inexplicably seated creepily close to Moore as he sang.
