Loch Garman Abú was recorded in the Summer of '10
upon the Wexford Senior and Intermediate Camogie teams reaching their respective All-Ireland Finals.

The Senior Camogie team went on to beat Galway in the senior final with the Intermediates losing out to Offaly with a gallant performance.



There's fires roaring
in every corner of loch Garman tonight.
There up in Camolin
and there blaring up in Oulart
and blazing in the Faythe.

Everyones Singing
'Loch Garman ABU'
for Wexfords bringing
The All-Ireland
and its glory home to you.

So we went to Dublin
and we painted the fair city,
in purple and in gold.
A young Marty Morrissey said
Wexford Camogie was bringing back
Our glory days of old.

So with that Mags Darcy
pucked the ball out to Kate Kelly cause
she saw her on her own.
and she found Una Leacy
who ran 40yards down the field
and stuck it in the goal.

Loch Garman
Loch Garman Abu
oh..Loch Garman
Loch Garman Abu

For the pride(for the pride)
for the passion(for the passion)
and for your home....
for every Wexford man and woman
in every corner of the Globe.
From New York to Sydney Bay
to the streets of Wexfords own
we are one.........
we are purple....
we are gold.

Loch Garman
Loch Garman Abu
oh..Loch Garman
Loch Garman Abu

and now its Monday Morning
and county Wexford
is a different place
lone behold
round every corner
theirs a banner waving proudly
and there's a flag
in every house and home

Everyone's singing
'Loch Garman abu'
for Wexford Camogie
brought the O'Duffy
and its glory
home to you.


Loch Garman Abu was written by Wexford songwriter Michael D'Arcy (younger brother of Current Wexford Goalkeeper Mags D'Arcy).

The song was popular at its time of release and received airplay from various local and national radiostaions including southeastradio, beat102103 and Todayfm.

A C.D was also put into production at the time selling well over 500 copies with all proceeds going back towards the players holiday fund.
