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.
