Watch: Armagh rugby team sing 'Boys from the County Armagh' to after cup win

By Gareth Hanna

City of Armagh won their first ever First Trust Ulster Senior Cup final on Tuesday night and celebrated in some style.

After the trophy was handed over and the cheers had rung round a Kingspan Stadium that housed hundreds of Armagh supporters, they all erupted in unison to sing 'Boys From the County Armagh'.

The feeling could hardly have been any sweeter after a victory that required a thrilling second half revival. Ballymena had led 13-3 midway through the second period but when Adrian Hamilton faced 10 minutes in the sin-bin after a late tackle on man of the match Cormac Fox, the game turned on its head.

Two quick tries by Andrew Smyth and Thomas Campbell, both superbly converted by Fox, won the game and left Kingspan in fine voice.

Have a listen right here:

"Like the boys from County Armagh" 🏆 The celebrations begin after City of Armagh Rugby Club win their first ever First...
