  1. In speaking of the grief of a certain young man at the graveside of his mother Jude Henry said poor fellow made a fine speech:-

    "Mo mháthairín bocht do chuir ar an saoghal mé,
    Go dtugaidh Dia bhFlaitheas bán dá hAnam bocht
    Agus 'cuile anam da bfuil ins an teampall seo indiú
    Go dtugaidh Dia Flaiteas dóibhthea amháin"

    (When the old woman repeated this she said
    "Mo chuid an tSaog"-)

  2. Luighmuid ar lámh dheis agus codluighmuid ar an lamh chlé
    Luighmuid le Dia agus glaodh Dia linn
    Guarda na naoi aingeal ar ár gcuirp
    luighmuid le Muire 's go luigheadh Muire linn.
    O Muire Máthair mo mhíle grádh thú
    Mo chabhar chúntai in aimsear go gcathugadh
    Go mo thuan réaltóga roinn agus gan bealach ár luighe
    Ná nóir dár leigheadh tú ár nAnam.
