The Groves of Blarney -about Blarney Castle in Cork - by Richard Alfred Millikin has this verse

'Tis lady Jeffris that owns this station
Like Alexander or Queen Helen fair;
There's no commander through the nation,
For emulation can with her compare.
Such walls surround her that no nine pounder
Should dare to plunder her place of strength;
But Oliver Cromwell he did her pummel,
And made a breach in her battlement.
