    The following refers to people around Aughadown near Skibbereen whom he knew as a young man. His sister Mrs. Sheehan was married there.
    The old times were the bold times
    And nothing like the new
    'Tis then you'd see the men
    And the cailíní deasa ruadha
    There was Mickey Neill the bowler
    And his rival Paidín Ruadh
    And Mike Hegarty the leaper
    And the dancer Thady Ó
    And the wrestlers of the country
    Sean a Shúil and Batty Brien
    And the strongest man in Ireland
    Jerry Callaghan the liar
