The Irish Rugby Team Were Treated To A Visit From Christy Moore Last Night

We're not sure if he's any good at calling line-outs but the Irish rugby team were treated to a special performance from Christy Moore last night as they continue their preparations for their last World Cup warm-up game against Wales this weekend.

The last time the legendary singer visited the Irish camp was just before they beat England for the Grand Slam last year so hopefully he brings the same luck to the squad this time.

Cian Healy posted Christy's rendition of 'Hurt' last night on Instagram, saying:

The great and powerful Christy Moore came into the squad tonight! An amazing hour of music topped off by this song for me. The only person I listen to more than Johnny Cash, is Christy Moore.
Awesome version of 'hurt'.
