WAYNE’s WARRIORS: Our good wishes to The Rock players in their final preparations for their Munster final v Cumann Barra Naofa of Cork. Our heroes will give of their very best to win Corn Mhíchíl Uí Chonchúir on Sunday week (16th). We expect all roads to lead to Limerick. Good luck, Wayne! Good luck, team! And good luck to all aficionados/fans/followers who’ll be wearing and waving the Black’n’Amber and cheering and singing and shouting and wishing our boys ‘over the line’! Agus bíodh brat dubh is ómrach le feiscint i ngach tigh ar an gCarraig!
Now, the Togher boys will face our men and they will try their best
But ‘Star’ and Dylan and our brave Rock lads will surely win the test.
From throw in, they will battle hard and fight for every ball
And the 16th Man will coax them on ‘till the réiteoir’s final call.
We’ll travel away for Craobh na Mumhan and hit for Tipperary.And The Rock will claim a Munster crown with Quillinan’s football theory! The Champs of Cork they will take on…..those Barrs of high renown. And our stars will strive for the ‘Connor Cup and the glory of Tralee town.
