    "Pat Gavin's stable is now like a manger, Its now convenient to Castle-Hide.
    He brought the Griever to relieve her.
    And now he's bound for Castle fair."
    This is the poetry Mick Kennedy composed.
    "Mr. Madden from Oughterard to Partacarron. He build a house and so he can, He did not build it without a plan.
    Mick Hoggan the right hand man. The Engineer he passes by, at ever corner he cocks his eye.
    The lead was laid but he said it was light And Mr. Madden said that wasn't right."
    This is the poetry that Pat Hare who was a weaver composed.
    "Pat often fought a grasshopper.
    He never killed a snail,
    He was taken by the bobbies.
    And never put to Gail."
