Tipperary Home Of Hurling Song Lyrics. Words and Arrangement Erin’s Own. Tipperary Home of Hurling performed and written  by Erin’s Own- who comprise of Tipp Men, Brian Corrigan, Willie Dunne, Dave Lawlor and Ger Hogan
Released to celebrate Tipperary’s challenge for the All Ireland Title and to inspire the county to triumph over Kilkenny’s five in a row challenge the song tells the story of Hurling in Tipperary. Tom Semple, Jimmy Doyle and many of the other Tipperary Legends are acknowledged in the song.
Chorus
Tipperary, the premier county. We're on the way back up.
Tipperary, the home of hurling, we'll bring back the McCarthy cup
I
Well I often heard my father speak of the hurling men of old,
Their legend lives to this very today, and they wore the blue and gold.
He told me of Tubberadora, that glorious golden mile,
Where 89 All Ireland Medals were won with bravery and style.
Chorus
 
II
He'd talk of Thomas Semple, a great hurler of renown,
Who lent his name to that Hallowed sod in dear old Thurles town.
Of Hell's Kitchens Storied back line, men of Iron born to spoil,
And of our counties greatest hurler, the brilliant Jimmy Doyle.
Chorus
 
III
I remember that half forward line of Cleary, Leahy, Ryan,
And Nicky's haul on All Ireland day, still the greatest of all time.
And Tommy Dunne in zero one, he led a mighty team,
Each time O'Leary got that ball, he shattered Galway's team.
Chorus
 
IV
From Cashel's holy towers, to the slopes of Sliabh na mBán,
From the sandy shores of old Lough Derg, to the homes around Kilruane.
From Kickham's fabled Knocknagow, to the Galtee mountain's might,
Our Hurlers have come willing and are ready now to fight.
Chorus
 
V
So now it's time to rise again and take McCarthy back,
With 15 fearless warriors, to lead a fierce attack.
Liam Sheedy and his band of men will keep our dream alive,
We'll send Kilkenny packing and we'll halt their drive for five.
 
Chorus
Oh Tipperary the premier county, we're on the way back up,
Tipperary the home of hurling, we'll bring back the McCarthy Cup.
Tipperary the premier county, with that sacred sod and clay,
 
Tipperary the home of hurling, home to the GAA.
Oh Tipperary the premier county, we're on the way back up,
Tipperary the home of hurling, we'll bring back the McCarthy Cup

 
Tipperary Hurling
What a great result for the Tipperary hurling team who beat Kilkenny 4-17  1-18 in the 2010 championship. Back To Hurling Songs
