Ned Broy # Glenn Miller

Triangle jingling
Up in the Joy
The Castle at Midnight
And ghost of Ned Broy
Thoughts for a legend
Great Paul McGrath
His friend has departed
Farewell to his Ma
Couples a courting
They met at the Pillar
And nightly they danced
To the tunes of Glenn Miller
Champ of the world
Rhymed with Balbriggan
Damsons a plenty
Beyond in Kilquiggan
Inhuman conquests
Of teak-tough Tom Crean
The road by the river
That flows through Raheen
Bunny’s Quicksilver
With Norm on the organ
Seventy three
And poet Cliff Morgan’s said
Drank porter in litres
There just was no beating
That girl Mary Peters.

Slán for now…Sláinte.

  1. Ah Cliff Morgan, a true poet. Didn’t he do Rugby Special at one stage? I can hear the theme tune now.
