Untitled (Bright shone the sunlight on Peggy and Doreen)

Bright shone the sunlight on Peggy and Doreen,
Wild swung the ash sticks. Be careful asthoreen!
Josie is getting right into her stride now,
Kathleen is hurling with all her Cork pride now.
A shout from the side-line: "Mark your man, Kathleen Cody."
Kathleen pucks it, I tell you that puck was a dotie.
The game is exciting, it is indeed really,
Maureen Cashman is tackling bold Ide O'Kiely….

(20 October 1943)
