My cousins were trying to find the lyrics to an old folk song that mentions Mullinahone in Co. Tipperary. I can't seem to find it anywhere. If you can help me, drop a line to PaddyPhelan@excite.com. Thanks.

The only reference I ever heard to Mullinahone, was in verse:
Mullinahone is a dirty oul' hole,
A church without a steeple.
Oul' women like whores,
lookin' over half-doors,
Criticisin' decent people.
Somehow, I doubt if that's what they're looking for though.........

Robbie O'Connell used to do a parody written by the late Dermot Morgan (Fr. Ted) which was a parody of "Mull of Kintyre." Mullinahone- pissed rolling home for my tea..etc.
Don't think this is what you want either. All the best

Sorry I can't help: Mullinahone must be one of the few towns in Ireland not a household name through one song or another. Of course it was the home town of Charles Joseph Kickham the noted Fenian leader, novelist and songwriter who wrote "Patrick Sheehan" (Blind Sheehan) and "She Lived Beside the Anner".

In the song "Put More Turf On The Fire" written by Seamus Kavanagh, the first two lines are.

My name it is Patsy Moloney
From the hill tops near Mullinahone.

Since the Tipperary writer and revolutionary Charles Kickham was mentioned, don't forget his novel about rural Irish life in pre-famine times: 'Knocknagow', or ('The Homes of Tipperary') with its hero Matt 'the Thresher', the hammer-throwing blacksmith who threw 'for the honour of the little village' against Captain French, the amateur sportsman.

And another claim to fame, three of their Hurlers will line out before a crowd of 50,000 in Sundays All-Ireland Huling Final for Tipperary, a great return for a small Townland. C`mon Wexford.Slan Ard Mhacha.
