Daniel McDonagh Poems
Comments about Daniel McDonagh
Bobby Sands - H-Block Martyr
The sky was black with grief & anger,
The rain, it fell with the strength of steel,
Ireland wept for a fallen son
As his soul & spirit was delivered to freedom.
The legends of Ireland mourned as one
As the strength was taken from Bobby Sands,
Cuchulainn's spirit awoke the fighting souls
Who saw a hero perish within a British jail.
The ghost of Ireland’s heroes
they walk again once more,
the battlecry has been raised
to rid the British from Ireland’s shores.
Freedom's bird hid within her nest
As Bobby Sands was laid to rest, ...
The flags of Parkhead
Will be lowered today,
As a Celtic legend
Has been taken away.
Jimmy Johnstone's memories
Will be forever told,
Of his days in the hoops,
His courage, his goals,
