The Future Of Stevie Mulrooney.


The Six Nations rugby is underway,

Six matches so far

But at the sixth match

Something happened,

It brought goosebumps to me

And almost brought tears to my eyes.

Such an emotive moment,

All it was, was a song,

It was the Irish Anthem

Sung before the match started.

The anthems are always sung

Before the matches,

But this one was different

As the person who led the singing

Was an eight year old boy.

Almost everyone was moved,

Moved by the sound,

The sound of this boys voice

As he sang the anthem with passion.

A passion that brough those tears,

Those tears to my eyes,

And to many more eyes.

Such a wonderful voice,

A voice that will go far in song

So that name will be with me

As I look into the future,

The future of Stevie Mulrooney.
