The following is a quaint inscription on an old headstone in the Bantry Abbey burial ground. The stone is a large slab of slate but seems to have been broken by the fall of a neighbouring tree. It is supposed to mark the grave of an unknown sailor who died in Bantry Bay on a ship. No name or date seems to have been on the stone, and few could now decipher the verse owing to the growth of lichens.
"Tho' Boreas' winds and Neptune's blasts
Have passed me to and fro.
In spite of both by God's decree
I'm harboured here below.
Where I do now at anchor ride
With many of our fleet
Awaiting to set sail again
Our Admiral Christ to meet."
