Have you heard the Castleknock GAA version of 'Tommy's winning matches'?
One of the negative consequences of the brilliant ‘Jimmy’s Winning Matches’ is that it was always bound to spawn a few cover versions that could never live up to the original. Like this one from Castleknock.
The Castleknock lads will be contesting the Junior Football A Final against Raheny in the near future and to help whip up a bit of hype about the occasion, a few of them decided to record their own version of ‘Jimmy’s winning matches’, with Jimmy being replaced by the name of their own manager, Tommy McCormack.
Credit where it’s due, the lyrics are pretty impressive and they even include a reference to Raheny man Ciaran Whelan and cleverly replace 'Senegal' with 'Fingal', but why they filmed in a toilet is beyond us and we can’t help but point out that the painted face of the lead singer and bongo drummer is mildly racist.
In fairness to the lads, it was an admirable enough effort and while not a patch on ‘Jimmy’s wining matches’, it’s not nearly as bad as Eoin Larkin’s effort on Sunday.
Have a listen for yourself in the video above.
