GUEST,Iains any West Cork songs? (30) RE: any West Cork songs? 14 Aug 21


Here is one prepared earlier:

I travelled wide across the tide
And many a place I've been
There's many a place I've been
Switzerland, America and Africa I've been
There's not a spot throughout this world
When clothed in Summer bloom
Like dear old Ballyvourney near the town of sweet Macroom.
I've been to Gougane Barrow and the Pass of Céim an Fhiadh
I've been down to Queenstown and back through Bantry Bay
To the hills of Conemara, Galtee mountains and Slieve Bloom
Agus b'fhearr liom Ballyvourney near the town of sweet Macroom.
Famous Ballyvourney can boast of half a score
Captain of them was Patsie Quill from Inse Mór
He was a man of lofty intelect and nearest to the moon
That shines o'er Ballyvourney near the town of sweet Macroom.
There's doctor Lynch who is loved by every Ballyvourneyite
He is working for the Gaelic cause
From morning until night
His heart it was as big as the biggest rock in Cúam
He was king of Ballyvourney near the town of sweet Macroom.
Ballyvourney is a paradise for strangers going around
No place else in all this world its equal can't be found
And in conclusion let us hope
We will have a railway soon
In dear old Ballyvourney near the town of sweet Macroom
