Heard this beautiful song recently:

& the singer, Muhammad Al-Hussaini puts his rendering across magnificently - a superb talent!!

The Leaving of Limerick

As I roved out one evening down by the Assembly Mall
I heard two lovers speaking, as me and my love passed on
But the words that passed between them, they were but very few
'Tis not the leaving of Limerick that grieves me,
But my darling, leaving you

In the morning when I am going, I will take you by the lily white hand
And I'll wave it o'er my shoulder saying adieu to the Limerick strand
So farewell to the girls of Thomond Gate, 'tis to them I'll bid adieu
'Tis not the leaving of Limerick that grieves me,
But my darling, leaving you

And now that we must be parted, I know you will understand
Why I must go brokenhearted, far away from my native land
Though my fond love I must leave you, you know my heart is true
'Tis not the leaving of Limerick that grieves me,
But my darling, leaving you
