It's not the first time that the Thai Tims have been singing songs from Ireland or about Ireland. This time, their new song has received over 940,000 views in one day and counting on Facebook. The video has received over 13,000 Likes and over 17,000 shares.
The Irish connection comes with Irishman Paul Lennon, a strong Celtic supporter, who teaches the children songs about Ireland and Celtic in an effort to help them with their English and raise funds for the Good Child Foundation which runs a school for children with down syndrome.
Given the viral nature of the video in one day, this could become a popular anthem for the Euros. Sung to the tune of Jimbalaya (On the Bayou), the new lyrics include "Martin O'Neill leads the team, he's our hero, And the man from Cork City is Roy Keano.", " the craic will be ninety at the Euro" and "Sweden, Belgium, Italy - prepare for sorrow
"You'll never beat the Irish at the Euro".
