"How will Faader Mattew stick-it?
You're only a curate, Father
But 'tis you haves de balls of a cannon,
You remember young Peter O'Loughlin of course?
Turned popish himself an' forsook the auld cause.
Den dey shot 'em in pairs goin' up de stairs,
And dey shot 'em in fours leppin' over half-doors,
Seán Treacy and Dan Breen,
And you, lovely Molly Derosa,
Many miles from Spancil Hill."
