From: McGrath

The Boys of Fairhill.

Come on boys and you'll see lads and lassies full of glee
Famous for all they will make your heart thrill.
The boys they won't harm you and the girls they will all charm you
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill.

Come on boys and spend a day with our Harrier Club so gay
The loft of the bowl it will make your heart thrill.
When you hear the Shea boy say "Timmy Delaney won today"
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill.

Now come on up to Fahey's Well for a pint pure spring water
The grandest place of all sure the angles do sing.
Thousands cross from o'er the foam just to kiss the Blarney Stone
Which can be viewed from the groves of Fairhill.

Come on down to Quinlan's Pub that is where you join the club
Where 'round us in gallons the porter does flow.
First we'll tap the half a tierce and drink a health to Dashwood's rule
That's the stuff to give 'em says The Boys of Fairhill.

The stink on Patrick's Street is wicked
How does Fr. Matthew stick it?
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

Shandon Steeple stands up straight
The River Lee flows underneath
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

Kitty Barry sell crubeens
Fairly bursting at the seams
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

In Blackrock there is no law
The next Lord Mayor is Andy Gaw
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

Christy Ring he hooked the ball
We hooked Christy, ball and all.
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

The Rockies thought that they were stars
Until they met with St. Finbarrs
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

Blackpool girls are very rude
They go swimming in the nude
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

But then thay are no good at all
Up against the Sunbeam wall
Here's up 'em all says The Boys of Fairhill

The first four verses were written by Sean O'Callaghan. The other verses have been added over
the years to mark sporting occasions or slag off politicians or neighbouring communities. The
style of the newer verses is very different to Sean O'Callaghan's. Of the added verses; Fr.
Matthew, Christy Ring and the Blackpool girls are the most popular and have become part and parcel with the original.
