“Athenny was a town of importance.”
Athenry was a town of importance.
At the time Brian Boru was Ard-Ri,
But it met with a lot of misfortunes,
If you look at the wins you will see,
Built right in the heart of the town,
'Till Cromwell whom every one curses],
Come over and bumed them down.He killed all the men and the women
And he said "he would wipe out us all",
But in spite of the wick of the old devil,
We have still two "T. Ds", in the Dail.
