Thread Name: Origins: Castle of Dromore
I originally learned this after hearing the Clancys (I think it was Liam who sang it) and still sing it occasionally.

Castle of Dromore

The October Winds lament around the Castle of Dromore
Yet peace is in her lofty halls, my loving treasure store
Tho' Autumn leaves may droop and die
A bud of Spring are you

Sing Hushaby loo La Loo lo Lan
Sing Hushaby Loo Lo lan

Take time to strive your ray of hope in the Garden of Dromore
Take Heed young Eaglet til' thy wings are feathered fit to soar
A litle rest and then the world
Is full of work to do

Take no ill wind to hinder us my helples babe and me
Dread spirit of the Blackwater, Clan Owen's wild Banshee
And Holy Mary Pitying Us
In Heaven for grace doth sue
