Remember 'The Likes Of Heffo's Army', The Original 'Jimmy's Winning Matches'?
By Donny Mahoney

You know you've made in GAA management when second-rate musicians start writing songs in your name. Jim McGuinness's greatness was confirmed this by 'Jimmy's Winning Matches'. But Jimmy's got nothing on Heffo, who had a song written about him back in 1974, the rather-odd sounding 'The Likes Of Heffo's Army'. A modern audience might think it's a song about Facebook, but in fact it was the original GAA anthem, performed by Dublin showband The Memories, who were also Vincent's men.
