  1. There lived in Islandanny a local poet called Patrick Stack. He made many songs about the people of the Lots and this is one:
    There is a bowld hero who lived in the Lots,
    He has an old cow and a crampy old ass,
    He has a fine farm, three acres of Rea
    Plant heath there this morning tomorrow it will be hay.
