Normal Service

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Although a win was not presumed,
As Friday’s match with Kildare loomed,
Most neutral pundits had assumed
That prospects for a draw were doomed.
Glenn Crowe looked trim and quite well-groomed,
As in the net his first shot zoomed,
And last year’s hunger was exhumed,
As Kildare County were consumed.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Pat Fenlon’s house is many-roomed,
And normal service was resumed.



Neglected to submit this during pre-season. Kildare County 1 Shels 6. Oh, that seems a long time ago..
