Lindisfarne # Christy Browne.

Edna O’Brien
And her Country Girls
Innocence flowing
Sweet words and curls
The rustling yews
Of peaceful Ardcarne
A spiritual hilltop
A shy Lindisfarne
Aranmen carry
Their currachs on high
Beetles on beaches
Mumbling on by
Gaggles of geese
Elope in a flutter
Pitch black oak stumps
And churns of bog butter
O’Leary’s great peno
It shook the whole town
He scored with his right
Unlike Christy Browne
G.Edwards and John
Two trusty companions
Jean-Pierre Rives
The soul of d’Artagnon
Bushmills gold whiskey
And rich men with gout
Stone Father Murphy
Murphy’s fine stout.

Chow for now…Sláinte.
