NEW ZEALAND may have beaten Ireland from pillar to post in their second meeting last month, but the All Blacks appear to have a soft spot for the Irish nonetheless.

That’s if this Irishman’s unique video, which was taken in Finnegan’s Bar in Nuremberg, Germany, is anything to go by.

The footage shows some of the All Blacks’ biggest names – including Beauden Barrett, who was man of the match in New Zealand’s win in Dublin – partaking in a very loud rendition of Ireland’s Call, the Irish rugby anthem.

Alan Boyle, who was doing a shift behind the bar on Monday night, shot the video and said it was “one of the most amazing things I’ve ever been a part of” when posting it on Facebook.

He added: “Singing Ireland’s Call with some of the All Blacks that Ireland got their first ever victory over just 3 weeks ago. So much respect shown. A group of complete gentlemen. I’ll never forget it.”
