The custom long ago on St. Stephen's Day was hunting the Wren. It is kept up all over the country yet On that morning they go in a batch to country places and towns playing music and singing the wren song as follows. "
The wren the wren the king of all birds.
St Stephen's Day he was caught in the furge.
Although he being little his family was great.
Rise up land lady and give us a treat.
We followed this wren through frost and snow.
We followed this wren ten miles or more.
We followed this wren to Kilbrush.
And we brought him here on a holly bush.
And to your house we brought him here.
