My favorite rendition of the “Cup Song” is the Irish school version

Coláiste Lurgan students
Coláiste Lurgan student singsColáiste Lurgan in Conamara, Ireland put together this amazing community performance of the Cup Song (Amhrán na gCupán in Gaeilge). 600 students and staff tap out the syncopated rhythm and harmonize the chorus to a beautiful young colleague’s lovely Gaelic lyrics, and they’re joined by guitarists and drummers too. 2.5 minutes of pure pleasure. Treat yourself!

The original is pretty good too. Anna Kendrick performing in Pitch Perfect
