    On Hearing A Song For Christy Ring

    Amazing how a song can stir up memories
    And only lately heard a ballad singer sing
    A famous song written by Brian McMahon
    For Ireland's greatest hurler Christy Ring.

    He was known as the Cork and Glen Rovers wizard
    And he depicted the spirit of the Glen
    And what set Ring apart from all the others
    Was that he had in him this great desire to win.

    Eighteen Railways cups and eight All Ireland medals
    The record of his combined medal tally stand
    He played for Cork when he was in his forties
    And held his own with the best in Ireland

    For the St Nicholas club Christy Ring played Gaelic Football
    And at football many better one could name
    But he only played because of club devotion
    As hurling always was his preferred game.

    But 'twas for Gaelic football Christy Ring I will remember
    And that incident from the fifties I recall
    In Macroom when the St Nicholas team played Millstreet
    In a game that ended in an all in brawl.

    A brawl that involved both sets of supporters
    For Gaelic football 'twas a shameful day
    And for the punch up both sides blamed each other
    And who is wrong or right who is to say

    And on that day Christy Ring met with misfortune
    In an incident that few if any saw
    And the next morning we read in the sporting headlines
    How Ring was suffering from a broken jaw.

    Some said a Millstreet fellow king hit Christy
    But others seemed to think that wasn't so
    That by a famed Cork hurler Ring's jaw had been broken
    An old score settled on that day years ago.

    And what happened back then to this day still a mystery
    Nor is it likely now that we will ever know
    When perhaps only two knew the late Christy Ring the victim
    And the angry man who landed that fierce blow.

    Amazing how a song can stir up memories
    And only lately heard a ballad singer sing
    A famous song written by Brian McMahon
    For Ireland's greatest hurler Christy Ring. read more »

    Old Jimmy

    With the aid of walking stick he shuffles down the side street and time has left him looking stiff and gray
    And truly it can be said of old Jimmy that he is one who has known a better day
    Ageless father time takes care of everybody there was a time when he could run quite fast
    But now he only can walk at a slow pace and all of his better days are in the past. read more »
