Not sure I'd call it a recitation, he calls the names of the stations between Galway and Dublin and adds a little comment with each one: Oranmore, here we are in the fine town where they train the militia- Athenry-Ah, here's a fine little town me lads... and so on. Nothing too exciting really.

Napoleon had an army of a hundred thousand men
he walked them up the Hill of Down
and marched them down again...

It's a variant/play on the Grand Old Duke of York:

Oh, The grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men;
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only half-way up,
They were neither up nor down

I did only give you half of it (in the guest post) and then quoted the Grand Old Duke (from its Wikipage). But that's not exactly what he did on the Hill of Down there. Not a million miles off bu still.
