I was sent this one earlier on, and I had to smile. ‘Bucko’s Red Army’ by the brilliantly named Joxer and the Skidmarks has been released to coincide with the FAI Cup Final on Sunday, a replay of the 2006 final which Saint Patrick’s Athletic lost 4-3 to Derry City.
Come on you Saints, no time to waste, Revenge for Zero-Six
Go out against the Candystripes and we can get our kicks
Fahey said he’ll be there, I hope it’s not a lie
He’s said he’ll come and bang the drum with the S.E.I.
Some in the crowd on Sunday will remember the boys of ’59 and ’61, who last brought the cup home to Inchicore. They’ll remember Willie Peyton, who last won it for us. They’ll remember the late and great Paddy Ginger O’Rourke. Those of us too young to remember those finals will be hoping for new heroes.
Tickets priced €10 for adults and €5 for children are available now from the Saint Patrick’s Athletic offices in Inchicore, Ticketmaster and on the day at Lansdowne Road.
