try this site Let Erin remember the days of old Ere her faithless sons betrayed her When Malachy wore the collar of gold That he won from the proud invader When her kings with standards of green unfurled Led the Red Branch Knights to danger Ere the emerald gem of the Western World Was set in the crown of a stranger. On Lough Neagh's banks as the fisherman strays In the clear cold eve declining He sees the round towers of other days In the waters 'neath him shining Thus shall memory often in dreams sublime Catch a glimpse of the days that are over Thus sighing, look through the waves of time For the long-faded glories they cover. Thomas Moore
