Shay Connolly – The Five In A Row Is What We’re After

‘Cluxton gets the ball and taps on his toe,
Gives out to Cooper and away he’s goes,
Gives it on to Fenton right on the nose,
Fenton gets fouled but the ref doesn’t blow
He sees Johnny Small sneaking up on the right
Johnny sticks it o’er the bar to every Dubs delight’

Shay Connolly writes:

How ya doing folks, above is song I wrote (re: Dublin football team). Don’t know if you do this type of thing but just thought I’d send on for the craic in the hope that it might peak an interest among your readers for Saturday’s All Ireland Football replay…

FIGHT!

        Brilliant song… The match nearly panned out as the song said it would. McCaffrey getting the goal and Diarmuid Connolly coming on with 5 minutes to go. Roll on Saturday evening!!!

          his problem is that he still can’t believe he has only one All Ireland Medal
          And only two All Stars

          versus – particularly O’Rourke two AIs and three All Stars

          While he refuses to acknowledge Smigs eight & nine & O’Se’s five & five; by pretending he doesn’t understand their Irish

          Why do you think he gets on so well with Ciaran Whelan (0 & 1 btw)
