Cliffs of Doneen

Barry Taylor

You may travel far far
from your own native land,
Far away o'er the mountains,
far a-way o'er the foam,
But of all the fine places
that I've ever been
Sure there's none can compare
with the cliffs of Doneen.

Take a view o'er the mountains,
fine sights you'll see there
You'll see the high rocky mountains
o'er the west coast of Clare
Oh the town af Kilkee
and Kilrush can be seen
From the high rocky slopes
round the cliffs of Doneen.

It's a nice place to be
on a fine summer's day
Watching all the wild flowers
that ne'er do decay
Oh the hares and lofty pheasants
are plain to be seen
Making homes for their young
round the cliffs of Doneen.

Fare thee well to Doneen,
fare thee well for a while
And to all the kind people
I'm leaving behind
To the streams and the meadows
where late I have been
And the high rocky slopes
round the cliffs of Doneen.
