Duhallow On An August Night - Poem by Francis Duggan

Two miles from the Village of Cullen in the parish of Millstreet
Where the rivers of Araglen and Blackwater do meet
The barn owl out hunting in the moonlight
Flying on silent wings a predator of the night
In the moonlit fields of Duhallow the hunting fox cry
His wild barking echoing in the silent night sky
Duhallow in Summer on an August night
The trees looking beautiful in the moonlight
In the fields where the rushes in clusters do grow
Where the Araglen into the Blackwater flow
In Duhallow a beautiful time of year
The summer near an end and Autumn is near
Above the moonlit fields in the calm of the night
The barn owl is hunting on silent wings of flight.
