In The Sliabh Luachra Of Today - Poem by Francis Duggan

Where poets and musicians and storytellers in numbers did abound
Of their kind in the Sliabh Luachra of today not many to be found
The long dead migrants of Caherbarnagh and the Paps countryside
Took their stories and poetry and music with them Worldwide
The past it has gone and old memories in decay
And time has brought change to the Sliabh Luachra of today
Less poets and storytellers and musicians that's how it seems to be
In the Sliabh Luachra of the twenty first century
An old mountain countryside with a great cultural past
But few things in life ever do seem to last
Sliabh Luachra it did have it's glorious cultural time
But the World has changed much since the passing of rhyme
Poets, Storytellers and Musicians are rare in the Sliabh Luachra of today
The changes keep happening it does seem this way.
