Best of luck to everyone involved in the Duhallow Junior A Hurling Championship Final on Sunday.
Give me O’ Lord a hurler’s skill,
With strength of arm and speed of limb,
Unerring eye for the flying ball,
And courage to match them whatever befall.
May my aim be steady – my stroke be true,
My actions manly – my misses few,
And no matter what way the game may go,
May I part in friendship with every foe.
When the final whistle for me is blown,
And I stand at last at God’s Judgement Throne,
May the great Referee when he calls my name
Say … You hurled like a man
You played the game, Amen.
