This Limerick student has written a brilliant Leaving Cert cover

It’s the time of year when procrastination really becomes a way of life for Leaving Cert students around the country - and one Limerick teen has put the hours that should be spent brushing up on his Modh Coinníollach to better use by writing a very funny song.

Jamie Stapleton posted a video on Facebook over the weekend with the caption "Got a bit creative and ended up writing a song... "LC Song" give it a listen sure" and it’s since racked up over 1,200 likes.

Inspired by Winter Song by Sara Bareilles, the Limerick Tutorial College student’s version features such lyrics as:

"They say it’s easy to get all As but with 61 more days, I’m f***ed is all I’ll say."

Have a listen.


Don’t worry Jamie, soon it will be but a distant memory.

That you still sometimes have nightmares about.
