James McClean has brought his pride for his Derry heritage to another level by having the first two lines of Phil Coulter's classic 'The Town I Loved So Well' tattooed on his left leg.

His new tattoo includes the lyrics "In my memories I will always see, the town that I have loved so well" and the McClean family crest.

"The Town I Loved So Well" is a song written by Phil Coulter about his childhood in Derry and was made famous by The Dubliners and the vocals of the late Luke Kelly.

 

The Republic of Ireland international caused controversy as a Sunderland player in 2012 when he refused to wear the flower on his shirt to commemorate Remembrance Day, and he was adamant afterwards that he would never do so because of his upbringing in the Creggan area of the city.
