The Legend Of The Paps Of Shrone

It is said where Anu does lay in east Kerry her fertile breasts grew to the Paps of Shrone
They overlook the small fields all around them distinguished in their ditches made of stone
A story from the first people of Sliabh Luachra call it myth or legend or call it what you may
The Paps of Shrone a feature of east Kerry does overlook the Sliabh Luachra of today
Perhaps the mountains have been there forever and each mountain has a history of it's own
And every mountain in it's shape distinctive though some mountains than others seem better known
The Paps of Shrone together seem very similar like a woman's giant breasts pointing towards the sky
Why they are known to everyone as the Paps peaks there is no reason for to wonder why
The mountains were there long before the age of the dinosaurs and long before the birth of the first human
The Paps of Shrone the breasts of Goddess Anu must have been there since time itself began
Close to the Cork border near Rathmore in east Kerry the Paps of Shrone like giant breasts do stand
Overlooking the fields of Sliabh Luachra and Duhallow a famous landmark in southern Ireland
Doubtless to say they will be there forever and of how old they are will remain as an unknown
Legend has it that they are the giant breasts of Goddess Anu and they do have a charm of their own.
