|The Clones Battle||7/17/08|
Twenty six years later, my how the time has passed,
That Thatcher b***h has been and gone, the war's over at long last
But down towards the border, one battle it still remains,
The fight to conquer old Ulster, is still Fermanagh's aim
We've battled the same oul enemies, to no avail for manys a year,
But suddenly by the Western lakes, a cloud of hope it has appeared,
For we've challenged the best in recent times, and they've fallen to our sword,
And now outwitting the great Armagh, will grant us our reward
Whilst the Oriel men were nimble, and the Oakleafers were big and strong,
Fermanagh men have courage, and to misjudge them would be wrong,
Bradley, Freeman, Muldoon too, all matchwinners on their day,
But in the fields of Omagh and 'Skillen, t'was the Ernemen who held sway
In every war men put on the green, and charge towards their fight,
But never before had fifteen warriors, been a more inspiring sight,
They worked together as a unit, fifteen men together as one,
Any weakness masked by another's strength, past failures all overcome
Shane Goan silenced Tommy and Paddy, Ronnie saved a pen,
Kelly was up and down the wing, the supporters cheered on their men,
Clucker proved he's among the best, now McElroy's up there too,
Marty and Womble bossed midfield, but sure then that's nothin' new!
Little ran for seventy minutes and Keenan had a starring role,
But every fairytale has a hero, and our's he got the goal
In GAA they talk of legends, like O'Shea, Purcell and Spillane,
And many counties have their idol's, the greatest of their land,
Now in Fermanagh we have great talent, but there's one never be-fore seen,
For Barry Owens is a giant of a man, the best full back there's ever been
So I say to our men on Sunday, go out there with your heads held high,
For you've reached this point on merit, 'tis your skill that has gotton you by,
But whilst the victories both held value, no trophy has yet been won,
While much has been accomplished, there's much more yet to be done
And so as you sit in Clones, and don an geansa� gl�s,
Remember the men that went before you, that served it in the past,
Men like McGinnity and Treacy, Mick Brewster, Tommy Durnien too,
The men that fought for manys a year, but whom victory never knew
But don't look back towards the past, and dwell on what's been and gone,
Glance instead towards the future, to the men that will follow you on,
For within your grasp is history, the chance to write it on your own,
The chance to inspire every boy and girl, every house and every home
And when you walk out on that hallowed pitch, know that in your heart,
Is the support of 30,000 spirits, the Fermanagh family of which you're part,
And as you look around the crowd, picture the kids when they grow old,
As they sit with their grandchildren, recalling the story that's about to unfold
So fight for every fifty ball, hit every tackle hard,
Make every single hand pass count, cover every grassy yard,
Jump high for every catch, even if out of reach it seems,
Work up the pitch together, fight every battle as a team,
Leave nothing left to chance, leave nothing left behind,
Play to your potential, and victory we shall find!
