Saint Cuileain’s Bell Poem

Bell Ringers from London
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.
