    It was on a Monday morn, ¶ The weather it being clear, ¶ When Maguire and Mc Caffrey ¶ Started for Dunleer.

    I have no more to say.
    Maguire and McCaffrey
    From their master strayed away.
    They made a resolution
    And to this day did agree
    That they would never go a-roving
    Except to Mullaghance.

  2. Almost forty years ago, Tom Maguire and Owen McCaffrey went to the harvest in Meath. Tom Maguire of Aghadreenan and Owen McCaffrey of Tahlagh were employed by my grand-father. These men were of the same age and were companions. Owen McCaffrey is dead but Tom Maguire is still living. He is seventy three years of age now.
