  1. Glorious hunting we had at old Clondegad
    Where we enlarged at Paddy King's Hill
    A Great many were there from all parts of Clare
    To join in the capture or kill
    Willie Hynes of Goureen brought out the "Borhereen"
    Good hounds to take part in the sport
    With "Doab" who could slip away as his whip
    After taking some glasses of port.
    Frank Whitstone and Ryan were eager to shine
    At Whitsone's stronghold that day
    But alas! they both failed, and on Gavin sailed.
    To the front on his good little bay.
    The family of Moran were never forlorn
    When hounds were running to score
    Then you had Martin & Pad with Mike and their Dad
    Great sportsmen were those of Clonmore.
    And now for the runners they were regular stunners
