But yet not forced to yield
The Wexford boys
Were never slack
With Tipperary
At their back
And Longford joined.
to win a crack
Soon drove them
Off the field.

They gave three cheers
For liberty
The enemy all broke and flee.
I looked around
But could not see
A foeman on the plain
Except the men
That wounded lay
When I awoke t'was break of day
So ends McKenna's Dream.
