True enough Kingdomboy. I love Red is the Rose. The Wee County's unofficial county anthem.

A question rather than trivia:

Can anyone tell me why jersies in early 90s used to have a 'guaranteed Irish' symbol rather than have O'Neills written on them?

Good question. Has it anything to do with Adidas not being happy that O'Neill's had 3 stripes on their gear, or just a promotion campaign for Guaranteed Irish?

That's a good song as well Ollie. We love our roses down here too :-)

If you look on the label of Villa shirts, the address of Rue Bobby Sands is written on them, where they are produced. Go on, give me a red thumb I dare ye!

It does mention the lyrics it was down by Killarney's green woods in Red is the Rose.

Is that true ?

It's still a good story, even if it isn't, but I'm not going to be buying a Villa shirt to find out for myself.
