Eoin O’Neil Has Gone to Clare © joHn Kennedy Jr .2019

It’s a long long way, from here to there
When I think of Clare
it ease’s off my pain, and level’s out my thinking

The town of Kilrush, the town of Kilkee
Both towns can be seen
from the high rocky slopes round the cliffs of Dooneen

Farewell to Miltown Malbay,
the sun shines bright today
the rocky shore is fringed with foam from Spanish Point to Freigh

Lisdoon Lisdoon Lisdoonvarna
Music in the open air
People the world over leave a part of their hearts in Clare

The sun shines like a Jewel on the lovely hills of Clare
We walk and see
the Shannon flowing by as the nightingale sing songs for you and I

Knew that I loved you, knew with you I would stay
How mellow
the light shines down upon Liscannor Bay


Those night’s in Six Mile Bridge How the songs and music flowed there
Year’s have passed and gone
since the times we had in the sweet country Clare

Take me up to Ennistymon, Ennistymon’s where I want to be
I want to live in Ennistymon
and wake up every day with you next to me
