    St Bouy built his Church on Inch Island

    St Bouy built his church on Inch Island
    He blessed it and saw it was good
    On Corry not far from dry land
    The Forde's noble castle once stood.
    On Corry and Chample na gladda adieu
    All ruined by Hamilton bradach
    in the year 1642
    Farther north and a little bit higher
    At the base of the mountains green slope
    The home of brave Father McGuire
    The [?] of Greggor and Pope
    Father still in that very direction
    The old Castle walls Drumahaw
    Where O'Rourke long afforded protection
    To the gallant O'Sullivan Beare
    Here west lies the Arigna valley
    Its charms my pen cannot tell
    And only three miles from the valley
    Lies the station of famed Lassair well
    By St Lassair blessed who'll deny it
    Just at the sixth century's close
    And in the old chapel hard by it
    O Carollan's relics repose
