  1. Corlough Chapel
    Religious Orators of real descension
    It's my intention for to unfold,
    Lest his Reverence might be offended
    I don't intend for to make too bold
    Through his fame requires these Critic Stages
    Of some courageous enlightened ?
    To sound his merits in golden pages
    And respect him daily with fond regards.
    His respected pedigree has been related
    And pronulgated by Cato's pen,
    Great Moore and Comerford have also stated
    He was the greatest of earthly men.
    What he related the Lord dictated
    And inculcated into his mind.
    Therre are acclamations in the heavenly regions
    Rejoicing dails oer our belst divine.
    This holy mansion I'm shy to mention
    As my comprehension is not refined.
    The blessed name of our holy Pastor
    Will remain till the end of time.
    Your statesmen clever lend your endeavour
    In hopes he never will be forgot.
