‘You’d think the whole country of Erin was waiting to get on the boat.
There’s accents from Antrim to Kerry, from Westport to the high hills of Howth.
And in no time, we’re into Dun Laoghaire, and the dawn rising clear in the sky.
I’m on the last leg of my journey. It’s hello to the fair Aran Isles.’

Kieran Halpin – Trip through Holyhead

“It’s of a pretty female as you may understand,

Her mind being bent for rambling into some foreign land.

She dressed herself in sailor’s clothes or so it does appear,

And she hired with a captain to serve him for a year.”

All Welcome!

      ‘Sly little Cupid has knocked me stupid;

       In grief I mourn, for upon my oath;
       My frame’s declining, I’m so repining
       For Hannah Healy, the pride of Howth

‘The Northern Lights of Aberdeen are what I long   

    to see;
The Northern Lights of Aberdeen, that’s where I

    long to be.
I’ve been a wand’rer all of my life and many a

    sight I’ve seen.
God speed the day when I’m on my way to my

    home in Aberdeen’
