Divvying up the Honours

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Let Harps win many friends for their resilience,
Let Rovers win a very late reprieve.
Let UCD win plaudits, not for brilliance,
But for keeping with the things that they believe.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Let Bray win great acclaim for their endeavour,
Let Bohs win even noisier support,
Let Longford win more matches now than ever,
Let Pats and Drogs win much more than they ought.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Let Derry win the hearts of all supporters,
Let Waterford win respite from fatigue,
Let Cork win tributes, as Pat Dolan taught us,
But Lord above, let Shelbourne win the League.
