The rendition was led by Gráinne Ní Choinn and Aisling Ní Sheanaigh and backed by a 120 strong choir, evoked many memories of the famous past pupil.
Shane Dowling of the Limerick Hurling team said: “I think the choir here have done her justice. They’re one of the best choirs I’ve come across. And the way they sang that song out at the end was a touch of class. It just shows the legacy that Dolores left in Limerick and the legacy that Limerick GAA has carried throughout the summer. It really, really is special.”
Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ Principal Aedín Ní Bhriain said that the song was about following one’s dreams, which is what they try to instil in their students and what the Limerick Hurling team had done.
“We won our own All-Ireland then by being selected as the country’s top school for the fifth year in succession. To cap it all off then, we had the visit of the hurlers here with the McCarthy Cup. It really lets us go out on a high from a very emotional year.”
