LISTEN: At Last An Irish Folk Song On The Ryder Cup
By Conor Neville

If you're like me you're Europe through and through, and when the Ryder Cup ends on the Sunday, you're counting down the days until it starts again on the Friday two years later.

The one thing Europe has long lacked is a unifying song to get behind. But now that has finally been sorted.

Dublin band, Regina McIlroy and the Poulter Sisters (we're not sure how long they're on the go. They may have been hastily assembled for the purposes of this golfing extravaganza) have released a rousing anthem,  entitled 'Come on Europe' to the tune of 'The Wild Rover.'

Here are the evocative and inspiring lyrics #EuropetilIdie

Oh I've followed Europe

For manys the Year

I've bought all the T-Shrts

I've got all the Gear

the excitment is building
just like before
McGinleys Men
will win it once More

Come on Europe

Bring on the Noise

Watch the European Golfers
Win the Ryder Prize

Now here in Gleneagles
What an Arena

We'll see a great contest

just like Medina

we;ll watch young Poulter
take the shots on

oh Europe will win

Elementary Dear Watson

Come on Europe
Bring on the Noise
Watch the European Golfers
Win the Ryder Prize

So Come on McGinley

Spure on your men
and win the old Ryder
all over again
we'll watch our dear Rory

holing those Eagles
and Europe will wn
the Day in Gleneagles

Come on Europe
Bring on the Noise
Watch the European Golfers
Win the Ryder Prize

So three cheers for Watson
and the USA

THERE IS NO DOUBT

THESE LADS CAN PLAY

its no shame to lose
to a great golfing team

oh this years winners

will be EUROPE

Come on Europe
Bring on the Noise
Watch the European Golfers
Win the Ryder Prize

Come on Europe
Bring on the Noise
Watch the European Golfers
Win the Ryder Prize

Come on Europe
Bring on the Noise
Watch the European Golfers
Win the Ryder Prize
