Tommy’s Nose

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tommy’s nose had a terrible itch
Things were going pear shaped on the pitch
His ears were also on fire
When ideally we’d want to be higher

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Just two points from eighteen acquired
Left us all feeling quite uninspired
Back to basics, a battle of wits
Jaffa cakes and their orangey bits

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 OK, we scored six and beat Roddy
Our defence was still a tad shoddy
We may never have had a black swan
But for two world class saves early on

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Tommy knows to drive on, not relax
Or start papering over the cracks
What took Tommy’s nose itch away?
Holy water, the Cork City way.



After our first 6 games without a win and bottom we hit Monaghan for 6 last Friday, it was back to basics, so now we’re third from bottom and hosting league leaders Sligo this Friday night but not getting carried away.

Roddy = Roderick Collins, Monaghan’s manager.
Tommy is our manager Tommy Dunne and he knows.
In fact we knows he nose.
