1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was April nineteen eighty nine
We were young and everything was fine
Glass of champers, fit to toast
But Daveys shot came off the post

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The next week came, contest resumed
From the start our quest was doomed
Felix scored, it all went wrong
At least he didn’t sing a song

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 More misery came in ninety two
Dave Tilson bid our dreams adieu
Landsdowne Road our private hell
Got soaking wet that day as well

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Exactly 6 years on from then
Another bid for glory, when
Davey led our merry men
A 0-0 draw, we’ll go again

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 6 days later and we hardcore
Our 5th cup final and yet to score
15 minutes from full time
Big Derek put us on cloud nine

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 7 more years would pass until
Another final we’d fulfill
Going for a worthy double
Drogheda came and burst our bubble

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So now we’re onto number seven
Blood and guts, one to eleven
Longford Town, we’ll climb that mountain
Please God we’ll end up in the fountain



We will play Longford Town on Dec 2nd in our 5th FAI Cup Final.(7 games including replays)
We have scored 1 goal and won one cup.
Please God we’ll win another soon.
