Here’s your latest unofficial Euro 2012 anthem.. by Breen, White and Gold

We’ve had reworkings of Smokey classics, low-key ballads to our summer holidays and Dropkick Murphys tributes. And now this.

SINCE TRAP’S BOYS booked their place in this summer’s European Championship finals in Poland and Ukraine, a cottage industry of unofficial anthems has developed.

We’ve had reworkings of Smokey classics, low-key ballads to our summer holidays and Dropkick Murphys tributes.

Then earlier tonight, this dropped into our inbox, I’ve left in the uppercase bits for you: “We are called “Breen, White & Gold”, and we burst into existance the second Ireland qualified for Euro 2012…

“We had just begun pondering how we could possibly get ourselves over to Poland/Ukraine for the championship, when all of a sudden…There was a great big bang! Sparks flew, and the ground beneath us shook as we heard the unmistakable voice of Gary Breen proclaim:-

“YOU ARE THE CHOSEN LADS! YOU MUST LEAD THE PEOPLE OF IRELAND IN SONG, AND WITH ONE VOICE YOU SHALL SING THE BOYS IN GREEN TO VICTORY!

“We said: ‘We’d love to do that Gary Breen, but how will we get ourselves over to Poland/Ukraine? We’ve no moneys!”

“MAKE THE SONG LADS, AND ALL THE REST WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF.”

So here we are.”

And here’s their song
