The band has received a message from Christy Moore on the guestbook section of his website saying:“Hope it all goes well.. Great to see Limerick back.. I know Mick Hanly will be standing tall.. Best of luck”.Connors on his way to Croker this weekend will be hoping the latter verses of the song become a reality as “Round Robins and Hawkeye can fly us to the Promised Land. As Shane Dowling said we’re not just here to march behind the band.” Limerick Post Show | Dora Gola
