    I can recall the Merry Ploughboy being a mainstream hit for the Dubliners in the mid 1960s.

    I can remember Man City fans belting that one out at Maine Road at the time. And City were supposed to be the 'proddy' team in Manchester back then.

    Some people have nothing better to moan about.
    BT Sport let the songs be broadcast loud and clear- How dare they let that sort of stuff be heard on my TV.
    BT Sport turn the volume down.- Why are they covering up for the Celtic fans?

    I can remember belting it out at Easter Road in the 1960's and '70's.

    It was an especial favourite at games against the Beasts, as I recall. The Dubliners recording was what started it, I think, here at ER and at Parkhead.

    It's a bit embarrassing recalling singing it, but it's a terrific chorus and no more violent than The Billy Boys really, and possibly the only adequate response?

    And then there was the chorus of "Go home ya Huns ..." (Sigh.) Good times.
