What did they die for…

Nár mhór an t-ionadh ós comhair na ndaoine

Iad a fheiceáil sínte ar chúl a gcinn,

Screadadh is caoineadh a scanródh daoine,

An ghruaig dá cíoradh is an chreach dá roinnt.

Bhí buachaillí óg ann tíocht an fhómhair,

Á síneadh ar chróchar is á dtabhairt go cill.

‘S gurb é gléas a bpósta a bhí dá dtóramh

‘S a Rí na Glóire nár mhór an feall.
