Millstreet On The Rise

For years in the Cork County wilderness but then no surprise
That the fortunes of Millstreet Gaelic Football Club are again on the rise
Cork County Junior A Gaelic Football Champions for twenty fourteen
On what was a memorable day for the fans of the gold and the green

In Pairc Ui Rinn they defeated St Finbarrs in a come from behind victory
The true spirit of Millstreet their loyal fans did see
The hungry for success Millstreet came to Cork to win
In sport as in life the will to succeed it comes from within

As is always the case victory it is sweet
They were led by the Pipe Band through the Town of Millstreet
Their green and gold flags the fans waving in delight
On what was for them quite a memorable night

The news of Millstreet's great win joyously received by Millstreet people everywhere
Those who live far from home in the big World out there
For love of the first homeplace in truth one can say
For as long as the migrant does live in the migrant does stay

Of Millstreet Teams and players of the past great memories to recall
And good to know they are on the rise again in Gaelic Football
With the will to win spirit of Millstreet Teams of old
They brought joy to the fans of the green and the gold.
