    Victory Clog

    Robert O’Brien, Director of the Band from 1952-1986, wrote arrangements of all of former band director Joseph Casasanta’s pieces, as well as the selection of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture which has become known to fans as “The Lou Chant”. Many of O’Brien’s own compositions have also become part of Irish tradition, most notably “Damsha Bua,” commonly called “The Victory Clog.” The Irish Guard performs a dance to this lively jig on game days when Notre Dame is victorious.
