Avondale – Irish Songs



Oh have you been to Avondale 
And wandered in the lovely vale 
Where tall trees whisper all the tale 
Of Avondale’s proud eagle 

Where fame and ancient glory fate 
Such was the land where he was laid 
Like Christ was thirty pieces paid 
For Avondale’s proud eagle 

Long years that green and lovely vale 
Has nursed Parnell, our grandest Gael 
And cursed the land that has betrayed 
Fair Avondale’s proud eagle ”
