The following song was taken down from Mrs Molyneux, Rustyduff, Knockanargan, who was formerly as Miss Dwyer, Slieveray, (sic - Slievereagh) Rathdangan, Co Wicklow. She is a young woman, and heard this song from her mother.

She remarked to me that Whelans fo Carrignamweela, and Dwyers of Slieveray are the only families having this song about Dwyer.
_____________________
Come all you sons of Erin's Isle,
There is none can help admire
This gallant stand for liberty
Made by brave Michael Dwyer.
He fought for life at Glendalough,
Where-in those lines shall tell,
Where at his hand two soldiers
And a base informer fell.
He faced the hills for Glenmalure
And quickly made his way,
And in St Kevin's rocky Bed
For weeks he safely lay.
