Grace O'Malley part 4 ©

Donal The Cock

Joe Sharp
Stra'ven, Scotland
2005

A description he earned when he captured Joyce’s tower
Storming up the ramparts like a man possessed with power
Battling like a fighting-cock his hackles all arising
Hacking with his cutlass and completely terrorising

Grace had three children to Donal ‘The Cock’
Owen, Margaret and Murrough, so they say
There was always a bulging behind Grace’s frock
One wonders what they were indulging in all day

The English at Galway turned Donal away
Saying, ‘Your trading has come to the end of the day’
A rival clan then conjured some pushing
He never survived the Joyces’ ambushing
