BOGSIDE RHYME proudtobeirish #remember

As the RUC open fire on a peaceful protest during the Bogside Massacre 50 years ago today, Derry boxer, Mickey Deehan, defends the men, women and children running to safety with the only weapons he has on him. And of course, they turned and ran.

BOGSIDE RHYME:

THE SMALL AXE WILL
KNOCK THE BIG TREE
WE ARE CUCHULAINN
AND WE FIGHT THE SEA

THE IRISH WILL LIVE
WHEN EMPIRE HAS DIED
WE ARE CUCHULAINN
AND WE TURN THE TIDE
