Brothers Of St. Patrick

It’s always
The Christian Brothers

The whole country marked
By their education and zeal
For the GAA

But not me!

I am a child
Of the Patricians
With green sashes
On black robes

Tough as hell
Six of the best
To make fainthearted
The hardest

With a flair for art

We were set free
To imagine ourselves

Writers and musicians
As honoured
In our achievement

As much as any

Future famous players
Might deny the start
The roads we were given
To travel

Driven beyond our means
And expectations

All over Ireland
Winning all Ireland’s

Without them it would not
Have been possible for us
To have traveled this far
