He saw the lighted candle and went up and threw it into the sea. Grainne was very angry and lifting up a mass of rock with her hands flung it after him but he flew away with the magic cap in his hand and the wicked witch was never heard of again.

- On Leaving Lough Derg.
Good-bye Good-bye, dear love Lough Derg
The boat waits at the quay.
Most holy shrine where Patrick prayed
I'm going away from thee;
