The DP World Tour have released another video as part of their 'Roots' series, this time covering Shane Lowry and the town in Offaly where he grew up.
It's a lovely production which details Lowry's childhood of GAA and pitch and putt in Clara, with interviews from various family members.
At 9:12 in the video below, Lowry's grandmother gives a beautiful rendition of 'The Streets of Clara Town', whose lyrics go like this:
"I recall the years I lived there, sure I never wore a frown. Happy were my childhood says on the streets of Clara town."

Shane Lowry also gave a recent interview, where he spoke about the upcoming season and the importance of a Ryder Cup year.
"I think it's very important for me this year. Obviously, the majors are very important for me, but the Ryder Cup is up there. I don't only want to be a part of the team, I want to be part of a winning team. So that's the plan. That's the goal.
"I wouldn't be gone playing the Hero Cup in January if it wasn't a Ryder Cup year. So that's how much it means to me. I'm not going out of my way, but I feel that might help, me, us, whoever in September."
"I want to go to the Masters and I want to compete. I want to go to the PGA and the US Open and the British Open and I want to compete. I might get to Augusta this year in bad form, and I might not be playing well. But what I do is I build up to try and give myself the best opportunity to do it. And that's all I can do.
