Destiny Followed Demands Sacrifice

Landing site of Miles Espana in Waterville – rocks in middle is where his son Eanna died according to legend

Standing sentry where Sceine lies
His love who died at sea
Before Ameregin chanted the sacred verse
So this Island of Destiny
From the Dannann could be seized
By theses armies by swords and spells
Their vicoty she was not to see
Which legend today to us tells

Washed by the waves, the cruel rocks
Against whom his head was dashed
Whown by his name they are washed today
As they were washed by his blood on a time now past
Eanna was not to have issue to rule
Any part of this land in his name
He by Mistress Fate was cruelly denied
Robbed him of the Destiny for which his people came

All men and people their destiny must follow
As water flows to the sea, that is mans road
Miles lost his son, Amergin his wife before stepping on the shore
That was theirr victories heavy load…

Amergin – chielf poet of Miles Espana
Sceine – Wife of Emergin
Miles Espana – Mythological founder of the Irish people. Married to Scots, daughter of a legendry Pharoe
Eanna – youngest son of Miles, who fell from rigging dashing his head on rocks outide Waterville before the Milesians landed.
