Subject: Completion of song/poem re Dublin 1916

I have been asked by a correspondent to find the rest of this poem (or song):

Down Dublin streets i walked that night
And saw the buildings where they did fight
The Citizen's army and the Volunteers
Who fought the English and knew no fears

From Sackville Street to the GPO
And on to North King Street I did go
Round Reilly's Fort to the Church Street Hall
Where Daly made the Khakis fall.

It is clearly about Dublin in Easter 1916. Sackville Street is now O'Connell Street, Reilly's Pub on North King Street was temporarily known as Reilly's Fort and the Commander of the Citizen Army in that area was Edward Daly, later executed for his part in the rising.

Has anyone a clue?

Thanks to all those who have looked for this on my behalf - and to those who have given information that has led to my successful location of this.

Eamonn Mac Thomáis "Down Dublin Streets" was published probably in 1965 by Joseph Clarke's Irish Book Bureau, Dublin "To commemorate the Golden Jubilee of the 1916 Easter Week Rising." It's a small book of 73 pages and seems to be quite rare - I can find copies in only six libraries in Britain or Ireland.

The poem has nine four line verses outlining the locations occupied by members of the IRA during the rising.

If there is demand I will post it in full.
