Kanturk In Duhallow

Kanturk by the Allow an old Duhallow Town
In north County Cork with many claims to renown
For the friendliness of it's people it is known far and wide
Beyond the borders of the green countryside

For one of it's great people Edel Quinn by name
There is a Hall in the Town in honor of her name
In her lifetime one who helped many of helping in need
A beautiful woman and a great person indeed

A Town i used to visit in decades gone by
On looking back the Seasons how quickly time does fly
So many nice people from there i have known
One might say of them in a class of their own

Kanturk in Duhallow i may never more see
Though it retains a special place in my memory
The Duhallow Town near where Allow does flow
As on towards the Blackwater it winds deep and slow.
