It was a proud day for Drogheda, as St. Peter's Male Voice Choir took centre 'stage' at Lansdowne Road to sing the national anthem before the 2014 Six Nation's rugby clash between Ireland and Italy.
Not only did the members say they were honoured to sing 'Amhrán na bhFiann' and 'Ireland's Call' for their country, but it was made more special by being Brian O'Driscoll's historic final home appearance in a green shirt.
'It was incredible,' member Sean Tester told the Drogheda Independent. 'My heart was beating like a drum, but the feeling standing there was indescribable – What an honour!'
He added that all the members agreed it was the most memorable appearance they have ever taken part in. 'Donal Black is in the choir for 52 years, and said it was without a doubt the highlight of his singing career.'
