Corrigan Brothers Celebrate McIlroy’s Rise to Number One With A Song


Irish Band Corrigan Brothers has released a song celebrating Rory McIlroy’s rise to world number one in golf. Lead singer Ger Corigan said “Rory deserves a song to mark this milestone”. The brothers who are avid golfers wish to perform the song Live for Rory and are thrilled to record this wonderful occasion in song. Lead singer Ger Corrigan said, “It is a remarkable achievement for an Irishman, it is great to see Rory make it to World number one”.

Corrigan Brothers previously gained a measure of fame with their “There’s No One As Irish As Barack Obama ,” which reached seven million you tube hits, charting all over the world and playing for President Obama.

The group was kind enough to send me the .mp3 for the McIlroy tune. I like Irish/Celtic music and I like this one (Irish/Celtic hymns are my favorites in Church).

The Lyrics:

In Hollywood Ireland
in the county of Down
they’re celebratin’
and paintin’ the town
in the Honda classic
in the Florida sun
young Mcilroy
became golf’s number one

When he was a young boy
his ambition unfurled
he wanted to be
number one in the world
instead of pitchin’
on to the green
he chipped into his mum’s
washing machine

66 67 66 69
Were the scores
On the PGA
National course
The talented tiger
Came with a late run
But Rory held out
To be number one

On greens and on tees
In rough and in sand
His clubs are like magic wands
In his hand
And all of his fans are
Wishin and hopin
That he’ll win more majors
Masters and opens

So here’s to the young man
And what he’s done
On top of the world
He is golf’s number one
With a smile on his face
He’s golf’s wonderboy
The World’s number one
Rory McIlroy
