Bobby O'Brien Lyr Req: The Boys from the County Mayo (18) Lyr Add: THE BOYS FROM THE COUNTY MAYO 31 Jul 97

Margo, the "girl from Donegal" recorded a different verse than the Galway to Dublin one, in her 1970 hit single of this tune:

The forth and 5th verses are:

From historic Killala, from Swinford to Ballagh,
Ballyhaunis and Westport and old Castlebar,
Kiltemagh and Claremorris, Bellmullett and Erris,
Kilkelly and Knock that's famed near and far.

Baugh, Ballina, Ballinrobe and Bahola,
Keylogues and Foxford a few miles below,
Newport and Cong, Tourmacady and Achill,
Charlestown too in the County Mayo.
