For Cork, Duhallow and his Club Ballydesmond a Gaelic Football great
The sharp shooting full forward with Ireland's best does rate
An accurate free taker and accurate from play
In Croke Park a hero for the victorious Rebels on All Ireland Football Final Day.
To be born to be a marvellous Gaelic Footballer is his great claim to fame
The Pride of Ballydesmond Donncha O Connor is his name
In Croke Park the Rebel County team to greatness he did inspire
And of singing the great one's praises the Cork fans can't seem to tire.
Duhallow home of many a sports star and birthplace of a dual Olympic Gold Medallist in sports still lead the way
A young Gaelic Footballer from Ballydesmond is their hero of today
For to wear the crown of greatness he has what it does require
Without him in 2010 Cork would not have won the Sam Maguire.
From Ballydesmond a champion Gaelic Footballer he is one of Ireland's best
He is never found to be wanting when he is put to the test
Ballydesmond's greatest ever Gaelic Footballer that would seem fair to say
And for the handsome dark haired Donncha let us hear the loud hooray.
