May we ask for safety on our Eireball Run
May we avoid breakdowns and overheating,
May we fix minor and many mechanical problems
And may no van, man or motor be left behind.
May the weather be bright, warm and dry,
May the roads be good and not congested,
May the convoy stay together and pass uncontested
And may we arrive in good time, every time
Let us know when we’ve had enough,
Let us seek comfort in beer and friends,
Let us find home on our journey on the road
And let us never forget the week of Eireball
We ask from safety from St Christopher.
And blessed be all on Eireball 2012;
Keep your nose between the ditches
And the Garda off your britches.
