Tadhg An Asna

To the memory of the men who fought and fell at the Battle of the Big Cross 19th June 1798.

Then here's their memory - may it be for us a guiding light.

To cheer our strife for liberty, and teach us to unite-

They rose in dark and evil days to right their native land.

They kindled here a living blaze that nothing shall withstand.

Erected by the Clonakilty "98" Association 19th June 1898.
