Lough Derg One Day Retreat
Saint Cuileain’s Bell Poem
Came to where traditions do sleep
Old memories of yore
Keeps ringing each year
In a glass case so clear
In London’s museum
Saint Cuileain’s Bell
Keeps chiming each year
Bell Ringers from London
Came to Glenkeen
The Bells they did ring
The Angels did sing
The church in the square in Borrisoleigh
Saint Cuileain’s replica bell on the wall
Bells they did ring to heaven’s high choir
Making history once more
In our ancient historic town
Written By Derry Bourke
The above is the Saint Cuileain’s Bell Poem to commemorate the Bell Ringers from London
to Glenkeen Borrisoleigh on the 27th July 2018.
