Six Nations Moments: Croke Park stand for God Save the Queen

It was February 24, 2007, and tensions had been simmering for the preceding weeks about what exactly would happen when the first chords of the British national anthem were struck.

The stadium had special political significance for Irish people since the shooting of 14 people by English armed forces in 1920

Would there be widespread catcalling? Jeers? Irish fans refusing to stand up?…See for yourself.
