Video: RTE create Stirring promo for Ireland-Scotland clash based on Trainspotting


RTE have come up with a brilliant promo for this evening’s European Championship qualifier with Scotland to get you in the mood for the crucial game.

The brilliant clip is based Danny Boyle’s Academy Award-nominated cult classic Trainspotting.

Based on in the economically depressed streets of Edinburgh in the late 1980’s, the film was also loved on these shores too.

The advert is capped with the slogan “choose Ireland” which will surely pull at the heartstrings of even the most pessimistic of Ireland fans and includes an appearance from renowned author Irvine Welsh.
