Teampall Nuadh

I
Oh! I love to see that churchyard on Lough Gur's romantic shore,
Where the shamrocks and the ivy every grow,
Where the wild doves and the raven like protecting spirits soar,
O'er the green graves of Teampall Nuadh

On the graves of those that nursed us long ago
May high Heaven smile upon thee and its choicest gifts bestow
On the shades of thy loved sleepers Teampall Nuadh.
