To " A Lover of Sport"
In words of wit and fame
You write on hounds and men
But you've failed to name
The hunting heroines with them.
In those long past happy times
And always I felt really proud
Of Roscommon's heroines.First on my role of fame
And history has it told
Of Mrs Mills-MacDonnell's name
In letters of emblazoned goldAnd far from her Roscommon home
She cometed at many shows
Her horsemanship had shown
And taken off men the coveted roseNow following closely in her steps
A fair haired lass rising gem
O'er hurls, walls and sod fences leaps
Comes Tomona's hope Miss Flanagan.
