  1. A Local Song (continued)

    It was on the twenty day of December

    (continued from previous page)
    And yet there's nothing fighting for
    Liek the gallant Irish race
    It will burst like sunshine
    to the rest
    And joys to they will bring.
    And Irish boys on that night recalled
    Poor exiled Irish men.
    The following song was composed by Pat Stynes an exile in Australia who sent it to his sister is St. Patrick's Street, Boyle: The Plains of Boyle.
    Farewell to Boyle, to lakes and all
    Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
