None more Irish than the old ones with Joe Cooney dosing a calf.

In the 1970s the Irish Army (the official one) had some corny ones which stood out. There was one for the "elite" rangers, where a fully uniformed troop were out running on a country track, singing a  call response, "we are rangers" "jolly jolly rangers"  :D

Here's one from the '70s for the regular troop.

It was corny, but it wasn't "jolly jolly rangers", it was "mighty mighty rangers".
Ok, I'll give you that one. Your memory is good.
Can you remember the name of the sportsperson, capped regularly at intl level, who led the troop?

I don't remember the name, he was a young sportsman and known to some extent, hardly would be a rugby player as any rugby toff would not be an army foot soldier, probably one of the top amateur boxers, a sport which had a popular profile then.

It wasn't that lad Loftus was it ? I remember him as an Army man I think, and he had a high enough profile. Was on superstars etc.

He would have been too young at the time and not in the public eye. He was even an unknown (to most folk) when competing in the superstars in the early 1980s.

Not strictly an advertisement, but this piece on RTE around the time of the 2013 hurling championship was top class.
