Patrick Delaney age 77 yrs.
Reared and lived in Clonin all his life.
He gave me the poem which was composed by the late Danny Dowling, Castletown, Mountrath.
Come all you Irish Landlords, and fox hunters like wise.
I hope you'll pay attention and take a good advice
I hope you'll pay attention,while i in grief and woe
Relate how I was conquered on the plains of Ahavoe.It being on a Saturday Evening on the 28th of May
The sheriff and the bailiff came there without delay
The policemen and the soldiers and the magistrate also
To drive Miss Dowlings cattle off the plains of Ahavoe.
