Dan O’ Donoghue

2014-12 Dan O'DonoghueIn Ireland Jack Mullan was known as Mr Coursing when i was a young man
On looking back the Seasons in time that a lengthy span
But to a man from Millstreet Town such a title now does belong
When it comes to coursing dogs and coursing Dan O’ Donoghue never wrong

Three times Irish Coursing tipster of the year quite an amazing feat
When it comes to coursing dogs and their breeding as a judge the one to beat
He is now Ireland’s Mr Coursing something worthy of a boast
To the genial chap of Lackabawn we ought to drink a toast
