Drowning in Dunmanus bay

    Michael Hegarty
    Dunmanus, Co. Cork

You mariners and fishermen
Come listen to my song
And if you will attention pay
It won't detain you long
How six poor men did lose their lives
It grieves me for to say
Nigh to the shore of Kilcrohane
That lies in Dunmanus Bay
On the 20th of September
All in that present year
That was the night of a terrible gale
Through the country far and near
Just as the sun had gone to rest
They went their nets to cast
They little thought upon that night
That it would be their last.
Those six young men were in their prime
And healthy for to view
Two of them were Mc. Carthys
Tim Spillane and Donovans two
And also Charles Coughlan
As the public papers tell
But I hope for all eternity
In Heaven their souls will dwell
