Video: Armagh fiddle player Niall Murphy's amazing toe-tapping version of 'Put Em Under Pressure'


A fiddle player is hoping his medley of tunes will evoke the elation of Italia 90 for Irish football fans this summer.

Niall Murphy from Camlough in County Armagh has created a mix of Irish traditional music featuring the Republic of Ireland's song from the 1990 World Cup when the team qualified for the tournament for the first time.

Put 'Em Under Pressure - which references manager Jack Charlton with its chants of Jackie's Army - was the anthem more than 25 years ago, and pangs of nostalgia are likely to hit fans as they listen to Murphy's music ahead of the European Championships.

The 24-year-old musician says the piece will bring fans down memory lane as Martin O'Neill's men bid for glory in France next month.

Niall, who plays music with folk singer Cara Dillon, tours with Breaking Trad and gives lessons around the world, said it will be available on iTunes soon.
