LEGEND OF THE MAGUIRE
(Andrew Mack, 1904)
In the bright day's of old when our dear land was young
her praises and glories were on every tongue
to each breeze her emerald hearts
ever steady for love and for freedom we dare
When the wintry storm raged around the old Castle wall
brave knights and fair ladies were held in the thrall
of harper and bard in the faith unbroken in this Irish heart lives still.
Oh for love we have fought and for love we will die
and love will uphold us when danger is nigh
and the fame of our name sure the land still admires
for they fought for their home and for love the Maguire.
