THE 'Rocky Road to Poland' started yesterday for our soccer stars when they added their vocals to the official Euro 2012 song.

With no time to visit a recording studio, the session took place at the team's regular training HQ at the Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links in north Co Dublin.

Dubliner Damien Dempsey guided the Boys in Green through lines which mentioned "credit union loans", "Opel Corsas" and even Giovanni Trapattoni's famous quote that "the cat is in the sack".
