National Champions -- 1986
the year 1966.”
The year was 1966,
the clock was making its final tics.
The Irish had the ball in close.
Were they the team with the most?
Go for the ‘bomb’ and the win -- was the Irish cry.
But Ara said No-- we’re gonna kick, and go for the tie.
The ball was kicked straight and true.
Leaving all who saw to sit and stew.
Duffy just scratched his head, sighed, and said --
Ah, come on mister, gett’n’ a tie is like kiss’n’ your sister.
