The Mountain By Roads Of Duhallow And Sliabh Luachra

The mountain by roads of Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra they wind up and down
On view of the Boggeragh Ranges through many a village and town
By Mushera via Aubane down hill to the Town of Millstreet
By the flat and rushy fields where the waterways meet

Via Ballydaly, Kippagh and by Gortavehy's hill of stone
And through Caherbarnagh and Hollymount on towards the Paps of Shrone
On towards Rathmore and Gneeveguilla and uphill to Knocknagree
Where on a clear day there is so much beauty for to see

From the high narrow roads of the Cork Kerry border one can see far and wide
Kilometers of flat and hilly fields of the mountain countryside
On towards Ballydesmond and downhill to Cullen and Boherbue and up to Kiskeam
So many mountain by roads of Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra far too many to name

On through Glenlara, Rockchapel and Meelin and towards Kanturk downhill
In an old countryside where time seems to stand still
Banteer and Dromtarriffe, Rathcoole and Derrinagree
From the high and narrow by roads so much beauty for to see

Across country via the Sandpit and uproad to Kilcorney and Lyre
The narrow mountain roads the writers of poems and stories does inspire
Up by Gneeves and Bealach on to Cladoch through the mountain border countryside
From high Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra scenic views stretch far and wide.
