So that is twice they were defeated
Down by Moyasta Shore.

He was again surrounded, our champion brave to crush,
It took hundreds of those English curs to get him to Kilrush,
They placed him in a "bridewell" his trial to think over,
And one of Erin's bravest sons,
Is Mc Grath from Moyasta Shore.
Now West Clare can boast of a Champion
Who fought for Erins cause,
And in their blood, he laid English curs,
And smashed all "Balfours" laws,
We hope to see, this champion free,
From their chains once more,
And Croker will remember,
"McGrath from Moyasta Shore".
