As I've repeatedly said, I may be wrong, and have added the source you cited about the Irish football team, before the mention of Celtic. If you have others, add them, but please stop removing material with verifiable sources in favour of unverified things you believe are "self-evidential". I have never tried to say anyone adopted this song 'first' or 'before anyone else'.
However, it is verifiably the case that the song has "long been an anthem of Celtic fans". It seems clear that you are keen to remove this fact, as shown by your earlier edit summary and your repeated removal of my sourced material. Poor quality sources like this  should help make it clear that Celtic fans long ago adopted this song, and that there may be better quality sources which help confirm this.
Given that many of Celtic's estimated 9m fans are Irish or of Irish descent, this shouldn't be surprising. Other editors, including myself, have not yet found sources confirming when the song was adopted by others.
As I've already shown, by inserting your reference re the Irish football team, I'm more than happy to support changes to the article when they're supported by research. By my "unwillingness to cooperate" do you mean inserting sources found by you and objecting to you removing my referenced material? In the discussion above , 30 July , someone called eon are you perhaps related? Hippo43 talk , 18 September UTC. To reiterate - I don't agree that we should remove material that is sourced while we wait for others to maybe find more.
As I've stated above, "it is verifiably the case that the song has "long been an anthem of Celtic fans". If you disagree, please explain why. I see no need to tag the whole section as disputed, only specifics which aren't currently addressed by sources. The current wording on Munster etc is supported by the source Irish Independent which you defended in the 'Anfield Road' discussion above. I don't see why we should rely on that source for one part of this section and go beyond it for another.
