An Gadaighe Grána
The Ugly Thief (ie, death)
The Goddhee Grawna
On the road to Lim'rick as I walked fornenst it,
I met ould Daeth by a ditch side there:
The ugly thief with his poll against it,
Looked down on me with a dreadful stare.
"Welcome poor Shauneen, how far are you walking?
I'm a long time stalking by the ditch for you."
"Wisha my bones are exhausted, and there's no use talking,
My heart is scalded, a Wirrastru."
