No Irish Need Apply

No Irish Need Apply          February 11, 2017





On a Glasgow street where people meet

Green and white from head to feet

troubled past without defeat

We've landed with no  retreat

Glasgow town was the place to go

Our team was irish, watch the show

No Irish need apply, we had our poor

Discrimination, no job for sure

Patrick was a no job name

Kathleen, Maraide,they're all the same

We came we struggled together

We faced rain and stormy weather

The children of our country stand proud

Irish names in Glasgow makes you feel so proud

Reaction to your name will make shout it so loud

We're Glasgow Irish feeling proud

On a Glasgow street where people meet

Green and white from head to feet
