Limerick's The Corrigan Brothers to write a song about Mullinalaghta's mighty win

Brian, Ger and Donncha Corrigan.

The Corrigan Brothers, a band from Limerick whose international hit 'There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama' saw them celebrate the former President's inauguration in Washington have turned their attention to Longford.

So impressed with Mullinalaghta's win last weekend, the brothers decided to compose a song for them.

Lead singer Ger Corrigan explained the connection: "I have been visiting Longford for the past 30 years. My friends, the Redmonds of Deanscurragh, ensure that I am always made welcome.

"Mary Redmond should have three Michelin Stars. I have spent many a great night in the Tallyho and have enjoyed many great evenings watching the Towns league of Ireland adventures.”

The Limerick Brothers who appeared on 'Up for the Match' this year with their Limerick Hurling Song 'Sporting Limerick Magic Hurling' have reworked The Knacks song 'My Sharona' and renamed it 'Mullinalaghta'.

The song is currently being recorded and will be released on January 3.

Ger Corrigan continued: “We hope to play it live on the Mullinaghta pitch when the All Ireland Club Championship comes home to Longford.”

A sample of the lyrics:

They’re the pride of Longford now
Longford now
They’re the pride of Longford now

No one gave em any chance
Any chance
No one gave em any chance
Now they’ve shocked ya

Mull Mull Mull    Inalaghta 

Half a parish so they say
So they say
But they’re going all the way
