They’ve been whingeing through the season
‘Bout those Dublin referees,
Claiming they’re the only reason
Life for them is not a breeze.
Far more sinned-against than sinning,
Sanctimonious and pious,
They’re not out in front and winning
Due to anti-Dublin bias.

Yet when they played down by the Suir,
Only four short days gone by,
Was the justice not impure
That made both Blues and Redsmen cry?
With a penno claim rejected
As the final whistle neared,
Frustration was injected
As the ball was roundly cleared.

And sure Derry broke out quickly,
With the time for playing past,
And in denouement quite sickly,
Scored a winning goal at last.
I won’t say it was squalid
But to quote dear Rico, we
Have been ridden rock solid
By a Dublin referee.
