  1. (continued from previous page)
    Cheer up you hearts my gallant boys,
    For the time is nigh at hand,
    For the British Constitution,
    We can no longer stand,
    We will call upon our Fenian boys,
    And those who are lying low,
    And we’ll cheer for Crossmolina,
    A town in sweet Mayo.
    I got this ballad from Edward Cassidy (50)
    Derreen, Ballina, Co. Mayo.
    Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
