Watch: This Song About Fictional Performance Enhancing Drugs In GAA Is Blowing Up

A pub in Charleville, Co.Cork, namely J.R O’Connors has just uploaded a side-splittingly funny song, about the rise and rise of a GAA team.

The song focusses on the performing enhancing drug, EPO. Its use in sports shot to infamy when disgraced cyclist, Lance Armstrong was found to have used the substance.

The song tells a hilarious story about how a Junior B hurling team took the PED and went on to achieve unbelievable success in their trade, as they jumped up the grades with their club before all going on to make the county team.

“We were all on the county team, I was every woman’s dream.”

The catchy tune is well thought out, and even mentions Ireland’s Fittest Family in the process, in a brilliant line:

“I gave some drugs to my sister, myfather, my brother and my mother and we won Ireland’s Fittest family, nine years in a row”

The song concludes on a funny yet serious note, mentioning that taking the drug had adverse side-effects.

“Practice all your hurling skills and don’t be taking any pills.”

At the time of writing, the video currently has 53k views and over 400 shares.

2017 is off to a good start!
