(Traditional Ballad Composer Unknown).
'Twas in the year of '98 that time of blood and woe,
When many a Saxon reeled beneath the rebels vengeful blow.
When Brittania's troops before them flew like chaff upon the gale
As they heard a dreadful war cry of the sons of Granuaile.
2.
On June, the six and twentieth, I've heard some old men say,
The Battle of Kilcumney was fought and lost that day.
The rebels they were routed though they strove with right good will,
And many a pikeman wandered that night upon the hill.
3.
The sun was shining brightly in the Summer afternoon,
Like burnished gold was gleaming each helmetted dragoon,
When nine mounted Ancient Britons knocked at John Murphy's gate,
They burst the wickets open, no answer would they wait.
