Shine on Kilkenny, we are yours

Lyrics

CHORUS
Shine on Kilkenny, we are yours
It’s home for us and home is where our hearts are nearer
Shine on Kilkenny, we are yours
Let’s toast this land beneath Linster sky
Let’s raise a glass both you and I
Shine on Kilkenny, we are yours

Kilkenny the Marble City, home sweet home to me
And see the lovers hand in hand as they walk along Johns Quay
Then take me too its castle grounds looking over the Nore
Flowing gracefully down to meet the River Suir
Chorus

A county of great hurling skill, the black and amber cry
To wear the jersey for the Cats is the dream for every boy
In Mooncoin where the Rose is sung, an anthem for the rower
Shine on Kilkenny, Kilkenny we are yours
Chorus

Its streets are filled with memories, its history still remains
In Rothe House and in Kytlers of Normans and the Danes
Catheral reaches to the sky, the house of open doors
Shine on Kilkenny, Kilkenny we are yours
Chorus
