Music video of "Bingham Year," an original song written in December 2005 and inspired by the heroism of Mark Bingham, a rugby player with the San Francisco Fog and passenger on United 93 on September 11, 2001, and the bi-annual Bingham Cup tournament, one of the largest amateur rugby tournaments in the world.
The music video features footage from the Bingham Cup 2008 hosted in Dublin Ireland by the Emerald Warriors, including the Cup Final match between the Kings Cross Steelers from London and the Sydney Convicts.
The song/lyrics include the following traditional Gaelic blessing in memory of Mark, a man of Irish descent:
"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand."
