Memorial dedication to John Keegan ‘Leo’ Casey (1846 – 17 March 1870), known as the Poet of the Fenians
Cá bhfuileadar anois, mic na hÉireann?
’s siad marbh, ina gcoladh innú i dteach Dé,
Ach éireoidh siad san am atá le teacht,
I mbaile na hAingil ag tús an lae.

Ná bíodh brón oraibh ar a son,
Ní shé an bás atá úfásach,
Is maith an rud é toisc go bhfuil sé fíor,
go n-éireoidh siad ar thaobh Dé amárach.

Whether they fought for the Empire, or an independent Ireland, for cash or conviction, for faith or for family, the sons of Eireann lie on battlefields and cemeteries across this country and indeed the globe…

Have your say...
