Follow Me Up To Carlow Lyrics

Lift Mac Cahir Og your face,
Brooding o’er the old disgrace,
That black Fitzwilliam stormed your place
And drove you to the Fern
Grey said victory was sure,
Soon the firebrand he’d secure
Until he met at Glenmalure,
Feach MacHugh O’Byrne

Curse and swear Lord Kildare,
Feach will do what Feach will dare
Now Fitzwilliam have a care
Fallen is your star low
Up with halbert, out with sword
On we go for by the Lord
Feach MacHugh has given the word
Follow me up to Carlow

See the swords of Glen Imayle,
Flashing o’er the English Pale
See all the children of the Gael,
Beneath O’Byrne’s banners
Rooster of the fighting stock,
Would you let a Saxon cock
Crow out upon an Irish rock,
Fly up and teach him manners

Curse and swear Lord Kildare
Feach will do what Feach will dare
Now Fitzwilliam, have a care
Fallen is your star low
Up with halbert, out with sword
On we go for by the Lord
Feach MacHugh has given the word
Follow me up to Carlow

From Tassagart to Clonmore,
Flows a stream of Saxon gore
And great was Rory Og O'More
At sending loons to Hades
White is sick and Grey has fled
And now for black Fitzwilliam's head
We'll send it over, dripping red
To Liza and her ladies

Curse and swear Lord Kildare
Feach will do what Feach will dare
Now Fitzwilliam have a care
Fallen is your star low
Up with halbert, out with sword
On we go for by the Lord
Feach MacHugh has given the word
Follow me up to Carlow

Curse and swear Lord Kildare
Feach will do what Feach will dare
Now Fitzwilliam have a care
Fallen is your star low
Up with halbert, out with sword
On we go for by the Lord
Feach MacHugh has given the word
Follow me up to Carlow

A wonderful song, celebrating an Irish victory over English invaders in 1580. The English advanced up toward O Byrne's stronghold and were overwhelmed, losing 800 men.
