Catching The Pig

No story for to be published too small or too big
Sean Radley online has published the story of Catching The Pig
At the Priest's Cross in Millstreet in Duhallow a piglet running free
Disrupting the traffic this is something nowadays one often does not see

The famed photographer Fr James McSweeney happened for to be passing by
For a few good images for to go with a story one who has an eye
For to catch the piglet a few did give chase
But he dodged them left and right and he picked up the pace

By a piglet on the loose at Priest's Cross traffic brought to a standstill
Till a young passing tourist with good pig catching skill
Gave chase and successfully ran the runaway down
On the busy roadway near old Millstreet Town

It is on the Millstreet Website for all to be seen
An Garda Siochana were even present at the scene
Where a freedom loving piglet was on the run about
Though of this being a newsworthy story some may even doubt

But in Millstreet a Town of Hurling and Gaelic Football
To be published no story too big or no story too small
And from the Town in Duhallow's old green countryside
The story of Catching The Pig it has gone Worldwide.
