Folklore

In the graveyard at Kilfergus, Glin, Co. Limerick a tombstone bears the following inscription.
"This is the grave of Timothy Costello
Who lived and died a right good fellow
From his childhood to life's end
He was the poor man's faithful friend
He fawned before no purse-prould cloak
And feared none but the living God
He loved green Ireland's mountains bold
Her verdant plains and valleys old
He sung her praise in song and story
And wept for her long lost glory,
And often did I hear him say
That God would end the spoiler's sway.
To men like him may peace be given
In this world and in heaven.
Composed by:
The Late Mr John Costello
