Ballad of the Brennans

Corrigan Brothers the band from Limerick who recorded "There's no one as Irish as Barack Obama"  will feature a song in tribute to John and Francis Brennan on their new album which will be released in March.
The band of brothers who have played at President Obamas Inauguration as well as amassing millions of you tube hits were inspired to write the song because they are great fans of the Kenmare based brothers.
Brian Corrigan guitarist and song writer with the band said " John and Francis are practical lads with a great sense of fun and they really come across as sincere and practical people. We love their TV Programme so with John leaving the programme we thought we would celebrate them in a song"
The Song called the Brennan Brothers will feature on the Corrigans new album called "If your're leaving walk out backwards so I'll think you're comin in" will be released in Early March in time for the Brother your of the USA.
For those who want a new 'Party Piece' the lyrics are:
now if you have a b and b
that isn't doin well
or a guest house that is strugglin
or a small hotel
if bookins aren't comin in
like so many others
its time that you picked up the phone
and called the brennan brothers
now John and Francis Brennan
are two lads who know the game
the Park hotel in Kenmare
is where they made their name
they'll go through every detail
on that there is no doubt
and when the boys are finished
you will find yourself booked out
Francis he will scour the place
and he will be frustrated
if your carpets are too shabby
or your curtains are outdated
it all about the little things
no detail is too small
you'll be changin all the headboards
and paintin all the walls
John he is the numbers man
of that you can be sure oh
he'll check every cent to
ensure you save some euros
he'll tidy up your menu
and adjust your nightly rate
when it comes to numbers
john Brennan he is great
Francis will start marketing
and bring local people in
he'll help you to show off your wares
and you will begin
to see the business pickin up
much faster than the others
oh theres no one who can fix a place
like the Brennan Brothers
