'Come out Ye Black and Tans'

The Wolfe Tones' rebel song 'Come out Ye Black and Tans' has hit the top of the iTunes charts in both Ireland and the UK.

It's after the Government was forced to postpone a commemoration ceremony for the Royal Irish Constabulary in Dublin Castle.

The plan faced a major public backlash due to the RICs association with the Black and Tans.

The Government says it still wants to go ahead with the ceremony in the months ahead.

 

The plan faced a major public backlash due to the RICs association with the Black and Tans and the Auxiliaries during the War of Independence.

When the song hit the number spot in Ireland this morning, the band tweeted to say that “Fine Gael got their answer.”

After the Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan confirmed the commemoration would be postponed they had tweeted:

“Cancel it completely and hang your head in shame for ever proposing it.”

The Government says it still wants to go ahead with the ceremony in the months ahead.
