From Ireland They Do Travel Far - Poem by Francis Duggan

They are well known travellers of the big World out there
A person from Ireland one could meet anywhere
From the North to the South Pole from Timbuctoo to Rome
They travel to places a long way from home.

Far away from their home towns and villages and their home countryside
In the bigger World they travel far and wide
The lust of the wander does lure them away
From where they first looked on the bright lamp of day.

The travels of the Irish the centuries do span
In post famine times their journeys out of Ireland began
Nowadays their leaving of Ireland out of a sense of adventure little more
Though many of them return to Hibernia's shore.

From Siberia to Australia from Paris to Baghdad
You will meet an Irish man or woman or lassie or lad
In any big city in any club or bar
You will meet one from Ireland they do travel far.
