Shane MacGowan has teamed up with Les Cronins (brothers Johnny and Michael Cronin) and comedian Joe Rooney (Father Damo from Father Ted) to record the ultimate anthem for Ireland for this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.

The song is a cover of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin’s ‘Je t’aime moi non plus’ given an Irish twist and renamed ‘Je t’aime Irland’.

Contributions from Rackhouse Pilfer, Biblecode Sundays, Brave Giant, Sean & Eabha Gavaghan, Shane Wearen, Eddie Reynolds, Flash Kennedy, Sugar Ray, Daire O Reilly, David Keenan and a 50 piece choir can also be heard on the track.
