AVONDALE

Dominic Behan

Oh have you been to Avondale
And wandered in her lovely vale
Where tall trees whisper low the tale
Of Avondale's proud eagle.
Where fame and ancient glory fade
Such was the land where he was laid
Like Christ was thirty pieces paid
For Avondale's proud eagle .
Long years that green and lovely vale
Has nursed Parnell our grandest Gael
And cursed the land that has betrayed
Fair Avondale's proud eagle
