Can't help you with the words, sorry. The only time I've heard it was a young girl singing it in Cooley's House in Ennistymon. Why don't y
ou write to the pub and maybe someone there will send you the words.
Good Luck.

I found a quote from the song at the website of the Clare Champion, a regional weekly newspaper:

There are places of fancy, of fame and renown,
But my choice is my birthplace, my own little town,
Snugly nestled and happy with no worry or care;
That's our town Ennistymon on the west coast of Clare.

The author of that web page says "one of our best loved local songs ... and it is as popular today as when written over 30 years ago."

I suppose you could try contacting them, too. Look here.

Andy Irvine sings My heart's tonight in Ireland in the sweet County Clare. One summer I'm going to visit all the towns mentioned in his song.

Ennistymon on the Inagh
Le Tadhg O hEagráin

I'm no poet, I've no pen, but my story I'll relate,
Concerning my childhood, sure I know 'tis my fate,
In a town in a valley, I was brought up with care,
Ennistymon on the Inagh, On the West Coast of Clare.

The waters of Inagh, come tumbling down,
'Neath the bridge o'er the falls, quite close to the town,
Stand and look if you're passing, any bet I will dare,
To equal my cradle, on the West Coast of Clare.

From the East and the West, from the world all around,
The tourist come flocking, our sights they abound,
But there's none so lovely, so happy or fair,
As my dear little village, on the West Coast of Clare.

There are places of fancy, of fame and renown,
But my choice is my birth place, my own little town,
Snuggly nestled and happy, no trouble or care,
In my dear little village, on the West Coast of Clare.

Come ye back our dear exiles, to the green hills of Clare,
To your home in the valley, your cradle lies there,
All your loved ones and neighbours, your joy they will share,
With a Cead mile failte, to the West Coast of Clare.

Sure we all will assemble, in our own little town,
Our birth place is calling, we can't let it down,
We'll fly or hitch hike it, or go by shanks mare,
To that town in the valley on the West Coast of Clare.

There's a grave near the village, up on Moughanna hill,
Sure it's the finest that ever you've seen,
Won't you bury me decent, and lay me down there,
On the hill oe'r the village, on the West Coast of Clare.

That's nice for you. Do you sing it?

I looked Ennistymon up on Google Maps, where you can see it from the air and also see photographs. It's a pretty town. Nice rocks, too.

there's a town called Ennis in Clare. What's the relationship between the names Ennis and Ennistymon?

Is your grandfather anonymous as well?

Not to be snarky, but what was the point of that uninformative post?

What's the relationship between the names Ennis and Ennistymon


The names are both derived from 'Inis'. That's about as far as it goes.

Was a bit puzzled by the 'nice rocks', not the first feature I'd think of in connection with Ennistymon. Perhaps you saw images of the waterfall on a dry day?
