On a cold November evening as the wind did highly blow. ...

On a cold November's evening as the wind did highly blow
I heard those Dooras lassies to Thonack (?) they did go
And they were invited for that night by the damsel Norah Mór
When I came there upon the scene in pardon to implore
I saw the Quins from Nogara and Rick Burke's two sons from Caher Mór
That white angel from Lough Corrough was plainly dressed in white
The most of my opinion she spread the gazers sight
That proudly Glynn and sisters that came from Nogara town
And that other subject Delegate who lived a bit further down

This verse was composed by the Sullivans from Chrushooha (?).
