Collopy's Cross in Limerick, Ireland
(Air: The Mountains of Mourne)
Back in Patrickswell is a spot I well know
Where the Collopy family lived long ago,
There was Tom, Tim and Mike, just to mention a few,
Of the grandest old neighbours that I ever knew.
'Twas there that we gathered in days long gone by,
When I think of it now sure my heart gives a sigh,
There by the old stone walls all covered in moss,
We sang songs and told stories at Collopy's Cross.
Bunratty Castle near Shannon Ireland... by MaugiArt Photography - This 15th-century castle is situated in the village of Bunratty on the banks of the river Shannon, just outside the city of Limerick. It has been destroyed no less than nine times during various periods of conflict and its drawbridge, moat and paved courtyard revive memories of times gone by.
