The mighty men from the Kingdom

The mighty o Shea’s as Cionn trá
Tomás agus Marc
will light the band of brothers
when the game will need a spark.
They will lead from the back
with O Sullivan from Rathmore
who will shoulder every Dublin man
who ever tries to score.

When the game is in the melting pot
and the battle it is hard
you’ll need to win the 50:50 ball
call in the ‘Young’ man from Renard
and the Brogans will be silenced
with kealy between the post
he’ll keep the two boys goal less
So the Kilcummin man we’ll toast.

Then the new man at the back
I’ll tell you he’s no joke
he’ll even score a point or two
‘Tis Brosnan from Dr. Crokes.
The Dubs will get stuck in traffic
theres a guard that on duty from Rathmore
and he’ll make it one way traffic
and deny them the chance to score.

Theres brave men in the middle
full of heart and talent raw
Byran Sheenan from St. Marys
and Young Maher from Duagh.
Then we have a man thats small
and runs just like a hare
to slice the Dublin backs apart
as if the defense is not there,
He lifted sam once before
as through the Croke park he ran
it’s that mighty little atom
Darren o Sullivan.

When we speak of heros
Of warriors green and gold
no better than Declan from Dromid
when footballs tales are told.
Each team it needs a worker
no better than Donnchadh from Cromane
who solos like Dj Crowley
with the strenght of Paddy Bawn.

But when you need some magic
to Drive Dublin hopes down to Hell
dont take your eyes off Cooper
for he has that magic spell
and he will be the pied piper
and lead them on a merry dance
but try to stop the Gooch
you haven’t got a chance.

“The Star” will rise again
and trouble Cluxston
and the Dublin backs
to score a dozen points
will be Kieran Donnehy from Austin stacks
in the corner is O’Leary from killarney of the lakes
who will to pass from every angle ‘til the ball the net
will shake .

James o Donoghue from the legion,
Bohan from the Stacks
will repalce tired limbs and legs and trouble Dublin backs
But one man the Dubs hate to see
for his strenght his tatoos and little smig
will be Galvin from finuge who’ll show them how to jig.

The other men in the subs we salute them one and all
who each played a part in the team when they answered
to jack o’s call
The man who is our Bainisteoir from Dromid and the Glen
will cross again the county bound and bring sam back home again.

So now here health to all of them
to legends like O’Connell that blazed the trail
for though the battle will be tough and hard
were not prepared to fail

So get ready with the bomb fires
fly the colours high with pride
for soon we welcome home a prodigal son
and have Sam Maguire back by our side.
