"Whiskey I adore"
Paddy McAuley's ass began to roar. Jon could hear him miles away.

It was Paddy's Tom who sang a song beyond the Coillte shoreSaid he as I went in to Mooney's shop and put my back up to the wall
I drank away the whole four day but "sára [?]" one drop I called.
They rose a row, I don't know how, but they rolled me on the floor
I let a shout to let me out for it's
Whiskey I adoreAs I went home by Thomas Lees the other night two barrow pigs lay sleeping in the sty
I envied them their happiness, how snugly they did lie
But like them too I would drink my fill and like them I would snore
