Pupils from St Mary's school in Knocknaheeny were in full voice this morning to cheer on Ireland in their World Cup Rugby match against Russia.

The students dressed up in their green colours ready to cheers on the team in Japan and delivered a thum[ping rendition of Ireland's Call for our photographer this morning.

Conor Murray is replacing Joey Carbery on Ireland's bench for this morning's game in Kobe.

Carbery suffered his initial ankle injury in Ireland's 29-10 win over Italy on August 10, but fought back to fitness to make the World Cup and featured off the bench in Ireland's 19-12 loss to Japan last weekend.

But the 23-year-old has suffered a minor setback and Ireland opted not to risk him against the Russians.
