Dublin 2002

By Clancy O’Lafferty

 

O’Leary! You should be in the pub this hour:

Dublin needs you see: we are a swill

Of spoiling ales, darts, boards, and scoring skills,

Your triple twenties worth pints in power,

The ales are lost or in our mouths are sour.

Do what is right: come back to us Glen;

And make us a noble dart team again;

Before the Limerick lads we cower

Your wrist was a gift of God, and a work of art

Your arm was shaped by His awful hand

Your toss was truly a marvel to see

Yet, quietly you walked the path of humility

At your wake: sit up and give us all a bloody start!

Come back to us and rejoin the team.
