- (continued from previous page)They will easily run through
So three cheer for the Tipps and their hurlers in blueTranscribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
God bless o the Bold Tipperary and shine down on Rebel Cork
God bless every Irish boy from Roscrea to New York.
If you travelled Ireland o'er from Lough Foyle to Bantry Bay
You would meet no men more nobler
Than the boys of Sweet Roscrea.
Meet them single or together
See their dark and flashing eyes
You would know their hearts were throbbing
For to see dear Ireland rise
For to rise and drive the Grant
From our native land away
And to rise the dear old banner
Once again ore sweet Roscrea.(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
