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’

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…

We’ve started a new facebook page called The People of Croke Park and we plan to photograph the fans on their way into the stadium for every match this summer – from now until the All Ireland.

It’s a riot of colour and excitement and the good weather yesterday really added to the atmosphere.

Fans from Carlow, Laois, Longford and Dublin were all out in their full colours.
