The Fields od Athenry

Wczoraj mieliśmy w Gdansku irlandzki dzień. I pokaz czym może być kibicowanie. Wspaniały pokaz …

Nie będę silił się na komentarz – załączam fragment tekstu Cormaca Eklofa:

There are going to be plenty of cynics who try and bring this wonderful little moment down, but just ignore them. Crank up the volume, sit back and enjoy the 6 minutes video from German TV below. This is just a wonderfully unusual moment in sports, a moment of goodwill, kindness, passion and loyalty. 

Enjoy it for what it is. Support, in the truest sense of the word. No Nazi banners, no bananas thrown on the pitch, no angry, hateful chants. Just pride and passion, displayed in a dignified, moving way by literally thousands of Irish who refused to let the score get in the way of their support for their boys. 

We live in what can be a nasty, brutish world, it is heart warming every now and then to find an oasis of goodwill and humanity. Low lie, the fields of Athenry.. 

Cały wpis znaleźć można tutaj.  Zgadzam się i podziwiam tych, którzy lecą taki kawał drogi i przy stanie 0:4 nie odwracają się od drużyny, nie gwiżdżą. A co to za pieśń?  Najkrócej jak można z Wikipedii:

The Fields of Athenry (Pola Athenry] – irlandzka ballada folkowa, opisująca historię fikcyjnej postaci (Michael), który za próbę kradzieży żywności dla głodującej rodziny został skazany na zsyłkę do Australii. Rzecz dzieje się podczas klęski głodu w Irlandii w połowie XIX wieku, kiedy to przywleczona ziemniaczana zaraza spowodowała falę głodu, która pochłonęła prawie półtora miliona istnień i przyczyniła się do największej fali emigracji w historii Irlandii. 

Od 1990 r. ballada jest hymnem kibiców reprezentacji Irlandii.
