On the eve of the All Ireland Dublin / Mayo clash, some of the singing was distinctly partisan, with Dicey Riley taking on the Mayo supporters in the other corner.

Poor aul Dicey Reilly she has taken to the sup
Poor aul Dicey Reilly she will never give it up
It's off each morning to the pop
And then she's in for another little drop
Ah, the heart of the rowl is Dicey Reilly

She walks along Fitzgibbon Street with an independent air
And then it's down by Summerhill and as the people stare
She says it's nearly half past one
And it's time I had another little one
Ah, the heart of the rowl is Dicey Reilly.

We don't encourage that class of thing at all. At all.
