National Limerick Day -Thursday 12th May 2022
|Brendan Lawlor||May 11 2022, 9:51am||Tomorrow is aul Limerick Day,|
After Covid times, months often grey,
So get thinking caps on,
And give members some fun,
Its the fifth line that counts, so they say.
|Warren Swords||May 11 2022, 10:41am||This Saturday is the Wicklow Way Relay,|
Where hundreds will start without delay.
I once gave a runner the slip,
Saw them go wrong, but hid at a dip,
So reccee the route or expect delays and dismays.
|Justin Rea||May 11 2022, 12:29pm||Your limericks have jumped the gun,|
It's okay as a bit of fun,
But remember an early starter.
Doesn't qualify as smarter,
The main field will pass at a run.
|Barry O'Neill||May 11 2022, 1:37pm||One day we were up on a hill,|
The wife said she forgot the pill,
Despite all the fun,
Should have went for a run,
The twins were named Jack and Jill.
|Raghnall O'Donoghue||May 11 2022, 2:32pm||There was a runner from Glendalough Vale|
Who could run road or track but not trail
Starting the Wicklow Way race
He sprinted out of the place
And ended up with a dnf fail
|Brendan Lawlor||May 12 2022, 8:08am||Angela's days of being single are done,|
For her wedding day, it has now come,
Lucky Paul, her true love,
Who was sent from above,
Wish them well as they head to the sun !
Congratulations to IMRA's Angela Flynn and Paul McRedmond who are tying the knot today !
|Mick Hanney||May 12 2022, 9:43am||A cross-post with Carrick?|
To Carrick went 2 bells
To race amongst the blue bells
Peter was first
John fit to burst
The younger boyo excels
|Dave Docherty||May 12 2022, 9:45am||Carrick last night was some run|
I came down to hills on my bum
And with leg 1 still to trot
But legs are now shot
Don’t expect trophies to come
|Brendan Lawlor||May 12 2022, 9:59am||Carrick race it was gnarly and hard,|
We set off from a fine horses yard,
Sean managed it well,
And we all ran like hell,
Peter won, and John's ego was scarred.
|Graham K. Bushe||May 12 2022, 10:10am||Our Brendan just loves an auld rhyme,|
Sure he’s tellin’ us all of the time.
Here comes his big day,
With the words he will play.
Some ridiculous, and others sublime.
|Mikey Fry||May 12 2022, 10:55am||Once dunce he fell in a hole|
Another one gave him some coal
The next went home and made a cup of tea
They all enjoyed it with a big pee
French fancies to get up the hill
Only after mummies favourite pill
Chilly peppers in a field they burn
Like the old man’s unlucky turn
Good day and see you with the lads
Where’s those flipping flags…
|Mikey Fry||May 12 2022, 12:18pm||Pete Matt pat fell flat|
One two three I hit 5 tree’s
Then had to lash
Ham went funny
Viv not funny
gone down the loo
|Barry McEvoy||May 12 2022, 12:58pm||If Portlaoise City had trails |
You'd have a few more boys on the rails
But we've the sauce and the chippy
And a slope that's too slippy
We're hammering wood into nails
|Brendan Lawlor||May 12 2022, 1:33pm||I like an odd Limerick, tis true,|
But then Graham, I suspect so do you,
Your efforts are grand,
At the rhymes, a dab hand,
And none of your Limericks are blue
|Brendan Lawlor||May 12 2022, 1:44pm||Mikey Fry , well that man is no fool,|
Won't be bound by conventional rule,
'Five line Limerick ,my hat,
I can do this or that,
And finish my Limerick in anyway I like Boom!'
|Liam Cotter||May 12 2022, 3:46pm||Hickory dickory hill,|
The runners were out for a thrill,
While downwards they scan, light footed they ran,
And the bog it was dry, so time to let fly,
Racing back down to the IMRA van.
|Diana Whelan Porter||May 12 2022, 5:09pm||The Wicklow Way relay is coming |
It should be a good lot of fun(ning)
The teams are all set,
So we hope it’s not wet
As we lace up our shoes and get running
|Graham K. Bushe||May 12 2022, 5:27pm||So Peter has won Carrick race,|
It’s posted all over the place.
I hope he’s not done,
For Saturday’s run,
The relay team needs all his pace.
|Liam Cotter||May 12 2022, 5:47pm||There once was an old shepherd named Sam,|
Who kept all his sheep in a pram,
It was hard going uphill,
After his little blue pill,
The pram it did tumble and the sheep they did scram.
|Brendan Lawlor||May 13 2022, 8:11am||A vintage year for National Limerick Day with 19 entries (20 if you count Mikey's double effort).. thank you all !|
Until next year !
