      Tribute to 'The O'Rahilly' sung by the legendary, Kathleen Largey.

      Author Unknown

      The night was dark, and the fight was over,
      The moon shone down O'Connell Street,
      I stood alone, where brave men perished
      Those men have gone, their God to meet.

      My only son was shot in Dublin,
      Fighting for his country bold,
      He fought for Ireland, and Ireland only,
      The Harp and Shamrock, Green, White and Gold.

      The first I met was a grey-haired father
      Searching for his only son,
      I said "Old man, there's no use searching
      For up to heaven, your son has gone".

      The old man cried out broken hearted
      Bending o'er I heard him say:
      "I knew my son was too kind hearted,
      I knew my son would never yield".

      The last I met was a dying rebel,
      Bending low I heard him say:
      "God bless my home in dear Cork City,
      God bless the cause for which I die.

        During the 1798 United Irishmen Rebellion, emigrant Irishmen returning from Scotland to fight for Ireland were nicknamed 'Highland Paddies'.

        'Highland Paddy'
        (Sean McCarthy)

        One evening fair as the sun was shining
        To Kilkenny I did ride
        I did meet with Captain Brady
        A tall commander by his side
        Then you are welcome Highland Paddy
        By my side you'll surely stand
        Hear the people shout for freedom
        We'll rise in the morning with the Fenian band
        Rise in the morning with the Fenian band


        In the mornin' we rose early
        Just before the break of dawn
        Blackbirds singing in the bushes
        Greetings to a smiling morn'
        Gather round me men of Ireland
        Gather Fenians gather round

        Hand to hand with sword and musket
        Spill the blood upon this holy ground

        Then you are welcome Highland Paddy
        By my side you'll surely stand

        Hear the people shout for freedom
        We'll rise in the morning with the Fenian band
        Rise in the morning with the Fenian band

        There's a glen beside the river
        Just outside Kilkenny Town

        There we met this noble captain
        Men lay dead upon the ground

        Then you are welcome Highland Paddy
        By my side you'll surely stand
        Hear the people shout for freedom
        We'll rise in the morning with the Fenian band
        Rise in the morning with the Fenian band


        There's a grave beside the river
        A mile outside Kilkenny Town
        There we laid our noble captain
        Birds were silent when this Fenian died

        All my life I will remember
        I'll remember night and day
        That once I rode into Kilkenny
        And I heard this noble captain say
        Then you are welcome Highland Paddy
        By my side you'll surely stand
        Hear the people shout for freedom
        We'll rise in the morning with the Fenian band
        Rise in the morning with the Fenian band
