- The Beauty of Gortnaskeagh
In sweet Country Leitrim in dear old Ireland
Where the country is so beautiful,
And the scenery is so grand
But grander yet that any
Which never will decay
Is the beauty of that lovely place
Which we call Gortnaskeagh.
The hills and plains are beautiful
It plainful to be seen
The fields are decked with daisies
And the river intervene
Where the throut and eel are sporting
All in their colours gay
In the sunshine of the summer time
In the streams of Gortnaskeagh.
The majestic Benbo mountain
That elevated ground
And from its lofty summits
You can view for miles around
You can view ten miles around you(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
