Can you give us any further info about it - who sang it, any remembered fragments of words? That sounds like it could be a first line rather than a title. Where did you hear it?

Is this the one? Called "Up Kilkenny" by Josh Woodward    - Album called Sunny Side of the Street

Free MP3



One fine day in Kilkenny, in September of the year
Our hurling boys were coming home from Cork and we did cheer

The people filled the streets that night all wearing black and gold
They looked like giant bumblebees, all swarming down the road

        Up Kilkenny, up the cats
        Hooray, the boys are coming back
        So raise a flag up to the sky
                Wave that gold and black

They town square was a buzzin' as the train pulled into town
You could move an inch cuz there were people all around

Our three time hurling champions were the fair town's pride and joy
Desired by the girls and emulated by the boys

chorus

Don't you try to find a pint at any local pub
They're running out of whisky and they're running out of grub

But the craic is flowing freely and the spirits running high
And if I see an empty barstool then I'll meet you by and by

chorus

At 8:00 next morning, the streets are thinning out
The celebration's over, but nobody has a doubt

Though the town will become quiet and the crowds will disappear
We'll be waiting for that train again, about this time next year
Tablature

Mandolin - key of G

There was an earlier request for this song, on 03-Dec-08. The lyrics were never found but there is some information in this thread: Lyr Req: One Day in Kilkenny.

One I remember from my childhood in Waterford:

One day in Kilkenny I called on Miss Brown.
She was up in the bathroom and couldn't come down.
Says I "Slip on something and come down here quick".
So she slipped on the soap and came down like a brick.

Tooraloo Tooralay. Sure the cream of society lives down our way.

There was another verse about a hen that I forget and maybe some more.
