The Likes Of Heffo's Army Lyrics by The Memories
Written by Mick Swan and Daire Doyle. A Dublin G.A.A. Football Song. The Memories are one of the remaining groups from the ''show band'' era. It may surprise you to know that the writers of this song also wrote one of the Fureys greatest hits ''Gallipoli''. Heffo's army was a massive hit when released in the 1970's, especially around Dublin. The commentator in the video is Michael O'Hare.

The Jacks are back the Jacks are back, ok
Oh the Dubs are back the Dubs are back
Like the railway in ko-barmey ?
'Cause hill 16 has never seen the likes
of Heffo's Army.

We'll be marching down from Ringsend,
And from Ballyfermot too.
From Eastwall and Marino,
To support the boys in Blue.
For 11 years we've waited
and there's nothing left to prove
So lets here it now from Dublin
Heffo's army's on the loose.

The Jacks are back the Jacks are back, ok

The Jacks are back the Jacks are back, ok
Oh the Dubs are back the Dubs are back
Like the railway in ko-barmey ?
'Cause hill 16 has never seen the likes
of Heffo's Army.

We came marching out of Leinster,
But no one thought we would.
Then we smashed the mighty champings
When they said we never could.
For 11 years we've waited,
Now there's nothing left to prove,
So lets hear it now for Dublin
Heffo's army's on the loose.

The Jacks are back the Jacks are back, ok

Oh the Dubs are back the Dubs are back
Like the railway in ko-barmey ?
'Cause hill 16 has never seen the likes
of Heffo's Army.

So here's to Heffo's army
And to all the boys in Blue
When the odds were stacked against them
They knew just what to do
So lets stay right behind them
Keep them on the winning track
With a mighty roar from Croker
Let them know the Jacks are back

Oh the Dubs are back the Dubs are back
Like the railway in ko-barmey ?
'Cause hill 16 has never seen the likes
of Heffo's Army.

Here's a few more Dublin football songs.
