A Person From Duhallow - Poem by Francis Duggan
They went to seek adventure and their fortunes in the bigger World out there
A migrant from Duhallow one could meet anywhere
A person from Ballydaly, Cullen and Knocknagree
Some of the Lands beyond their Homeland borders they left home for to see
From Rathcoole and Dromtarriffe, Kanturk and Derrinagree,
Rockchapel and Newmarket, Kilcorney and Boherbue
To the big Cities of Australia and New Zealand and as well as to Cities such as London, Paris, New York and Rome
Young migrants from Duhallow do travel far from home.
Meelin, Knockscovane, Tullylease and Freemount and Ballydesmond and Kiskeam
And from all Townlands of the old Barony far too many for to name
Nadd, Banteer to the countryside by Mushera and downhill to Millstreet
In any Country of the World a Duhallow person one might meet.
To Moscow and to Berlin and Capetown and Bombay
From their old homes in Duhallow they do travel far away
To distant places in search of self betterment and adventure in the big World out there
A person from Duhallow one might meet anywhere.
