Uri # Shay # Mr. Heaney # Goodbye to Lee # John Dawes

Six decades now
Since Uri went up
Then put on a chute
And jumped from the cup
A lark in the air
Veronica Dunne
Took part it the game
A game which she won
Bright morning sun
On elms in Clonsilla
Clint was the man
So sang the Gorillas
Eccentric and bright
Forthright and steely
One final encore
Go easy Shay Healy
Our Rachel Blackmore
Yes everything rhymes
Won the big race
Most glorious times
Late Mr. Heaney
The poet from Derry
His birthday today
When blossoms the cherry
Dublin’s Lee Dunne
Said Goodbye to the Hill
Farewell to John Dawes
Such power and skill.

Beidh mé ar ais…sláinte.
