Watch: Goosebumps As Fields Of Athenry Drowns Out The Haka
By Balls Team Updated

All this week on The Rewind, we're on a quest to find out what Ireland's Greatest Singalong Song is.

'The Fields of Athenry' is one song in the running, and it holds a special place in the hearts of Irish sports fans.

Here's a stadium-wide rendition from 2019 that drowned out the Haka at the Rugby World Cup.

The country's eyes were all on Tokyo as Ireland took on the All Blacks for a momentous World Cup quarterfinal. It proved to be an emotional occasion, as it was the last game for both Joe Schmidt and Rory Best in the Ireland set-up.

There was a huge turnout for Irish fans at the stadium and Ireland's Call was emotional as it could ever be. Better was still to come as the Irish fans drowned out the Haka with the Fields of Athenry.

Fans inside the stadium captured the incredible sounds of the Fields.
