Dictated this poem which was composed by Patrick Ryan, Camross
THE UPPERWOOD RANGERS (Hurling team of years ago)
I;
Come on me boys,let us march on
So glory does invite us
And thro' Roscrea we'll take our way
No danger shall afright us,
We for all sorts of liquor called
The landlord says, ye're strangers
"Are ye the boys we did hear off?
Are ye the Upperwood Rangers?

Its true it's from Coolrain we came
That lovely seat of pleasure
Where heroes bold stood uncontrolled
Beyond all time and measure
Its true its from Coolrain we came
At hurling we're no strangers
We are the boys, ye did hear of
We are the Upperwood Rangers.
The day appointed soon drew nigh
