Mick Pearce (MCP) Lyr Req: Abbeyfeale, Knocknagoshel and Duagh (7) RE: Lyr Req: Abbeyfeale, Knocknagoshel and Duagh 15 Jun 19

According to this article Is witty Abbeyfeale more of a state of mind? (pdf of newspaper article) the song is only the chorus:

What town, for example, could have its popular anthem a song with only eight words - the first five of them being "Abbeyfeale"?

Abbeyfeale, Abbeyfeale,
Abbeyfeale, Abbeyfeale,
Abbeyfeale, Knocknagoshel and Duagh.

Locals sing it twice, then drop to a minor key, announcing, before intoning it again, that you are about to hear "the sad verse".
