Singing up for Big Sam as Irish band perform song in honour of Sunderland boss

A band of brothers have created their own tribute to Big Sam as Sunderland's relegation battle is finally won.

The Corrigan Brothers rose to fame with their song There's No One As Irish as Barack Obama and have previously created The Tinkerman in praise of Leicester City's manager Claudio Ranieri and Vincent Tan What a Man for Cardiff City's majority stakeholder.

The Corrigan Brothers have paid tribute to their hero Sam Allardyce in song,

Now they have given Sam Allardyce the tribute treatment with Thank You Big Sam.

The band are from Limerick, where he began his managing career back in 1991.

Guitarist Brian Corrigan said: "Sam still enjoys legendary status in our hometown of Limerick and we felt he deserved to be celebrated with a song."

The band wrote and recorded the song after Sunderland defeated Chelsea and hope Black Cats fans will enjoy it as they celebrate tonight's 3-0 win over Everton.

Brian added: "We knew after the Chelsea game that Sunderland would stay up so went straight to the studio and wrote and recorded the song."

The song called "Thank you Big Sam" is released and ready to be shared.

Thank You Big Sam

October 15

His job was to save us from going down

He organised us like only he can

A Sunderland legend his name is big Sam

chorus

Toor a loo toor a loo

Toor a loo toor a lam

We're premier league

Thank you Big Sam

Oh what a run it proved to be

We beat the champions the mighty Chelsea

Big Sam what a leader he ran the show

and what a legend Jermaine Defoe

chorus

Toor a loo toor a loo

Toor a loo toor a lam

We're premier league

Thank you big Sam.
