A Song

My name is Patrick Sheehan

A Song

Ainm an Aithriseora: Mícheál Ó Griobhtha
A Seoladh: Cul-Ruadh, Gleann Beithe
A Aois: 50 bl.
My name is Patrick Sheehan,
And my years are 34.
Tipperary is my native place,
Not far from Galteemore,
I came of honest parents.
But now they are lying low.
And many the pleasant days I spent,
In the Glens of Aherlow.
11.
My father died I closed his eyes.
Outside our cabin door
The Landlord and the Sheriff too,
Were there the day before,
My broken hearted mother and sister three also.
