Twas the night before Sunday........

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

'Twas the night before Sunday and all through the town, No one was sleeping, no one was down, The stockings were hung by the chimney with care In the hopes that Sam, might soon be there The children were nestled all snug in their beds While visions of Bernard scored in their heads. Herself in her pj's and I in the nip Had just settled down for a small bit of kip When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter Seany16 was there throwing stones Wayno was hammered abusing his phone The heavens had opened, the lads they were soaked "waynos on HS" I bet you, I joked When what to my wondering eyes should appear But Jimbo and Jackeen, and they full of beer With a little old driver so lively and rough Well I knew in a moment, it must be ol Snuf, More rapid than eagles, his coursers they came And he whistled and he shouted and he called them by name "On Dubby, on Damo, on Culann and Navy, On Dubupnorth,, Witnof,, HurlingDub and Davy! To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall Now, dash away, dash away, dash away all!" As dry leaves that before the Big match they fly When they meet to an obstacle mount to the sky So up to the rooftop the coursers they flew With a sack full of jerseys and MesAmis too. I opened the door, and ushered them in, The lads they were nervous so I said with a grin We've been here before, theres nothing to Fear But Liamo they cried, Andy Moran is near "I hear Aidan O'Shea, he sleeps with a ball, And Cillian O.Connor isn't injured atall Donal Vaughan has a book about Ciaran Kilkenny He tears out the pages and ates them with Jelly" "James Horan has sheep that he keeps in a shed Tom Cuniffe sleeps with them, no more to be said Enda Varley can open a can with his teeth Alan Freeman drinks coolant to keep out the heat These Mayo men are hard, they hardly break sweat, They know how to stick a size five in the net, The sight of a Dub holds for them no fear But there's something we have, that they would hold dear See we have the medals, we know how its done, Until 73 minutes, the game is not won How will they feel with seconds to go, When Bernard is running with K-Mac in tow Their defence, it will tire and leave us a hole, For Diarmuid to play a quick ball fast and low Paul Mannion will gather, and quick he will turn The net it will burst, Mayo will burn So fear not young Dubs, this game we will win The All Ireland is ours, we will never give in Mayo will come, and mayo will go But Dublin will stand and acclaim its Hero The gang they all listened, all bristled with pride Clondalkin was crying and holding his sides Navy was nodding and agreeing with all Dublin would win, Mayo would fall Enjoy this Sunday, for these days are rare 32 other counties wish there were there, Dublin and Mayo, to you both I wish luck, But only one county can win in my book Jimbo gathered the troops, satisfied and content, They loaded into the hiace and off home they all went But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight, Happy Sunday to all, and to all, a good night….
