A football club in Scotland has launched an investigation after a video of pro-IRA chants emerged at its social club on social media.

Footage, allegedly filmed at Luncarty FC’s social club, captured a group of people singing about the Irish Republican Army, to Beautiful Sunday by Daniel Boone.

It was posted to Twitter on Saturday, the day Perthshire based Luncarty Junior played Glasgow side St Roch’s.

The crowd can be heard singing: “Oh, oh, oh, it’s the republican army. It’s the I, I, I, IRA.”

Police Scotland were tagged into the tweet.

A statement from the club read: “Luncarty were made aware of the video on social media after Saturday.

“The club is carrying out an internal investigation but we are satisfied from the video footage that no representative from our playing staff, committee or supporters are involved.

“The footage does not align with the values of Luncarty FC, which is a community and family club and we strongly condemn the actions on display in the video. The footage is also not representative of the majority of supporters who attended both games.”
