Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika

In response to the English defeat (double!) at the weekend I would like to express my congratulations to our comrades in South Africa.

The links between Irish Republicans and the ANC have been long established and to this day we remain friends and comrades.

I first heard Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika when Ronnie Kasrils, the South African Minister for Intelligence and senior representative of the African National Congress, attended a Sinn Féin organised event.

I am quite a fan of national anthems and my favourite is the Soviet national anthem

Myself and Setanta have recently taken to singing La Marseillaise whilst drunk , however that is for the purpose of annoying a certain individual rather than any love of the anthem.
