- You're all aware of that affair
Of Thady Burke's of Pallas,How he and his were used by this
Embodiment of malice.An iron hut with horse and foot,
And veteran commanders,
Were brought from town to keep us down
By limping Tommy Saunders.From Cove of Cork sail to New York,
Where Hudson stream meanders.
But you won't sight a black or white
To match old Tommy Saunders.The above poem was recited by, Thomas Finnan ( a relative of Myles Finnan the poet)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
