Cath Na Brioscai

This song is by Cruachan and appears on the album Nine Years Of Blood (2018).

Crown forces were under siege,
In the county of Fermanagh.
So a resupply was sent,
To offer aid and bring relief.

Henry Duke, he led the way,
Of this small relief force.
He expected no resistance,
The Irish had other plans!

Their march would take four days,
They were laden with food supplies,
Riflemen hid in the woods,
Targeting soldiers as they could.

The Irish attacked in force,
At the ford of the Arney River.
The ambush was absolute,
The resupply was abandoned.

The survivors fled to Cavan,
Their defeat did cause alarm.
Fresh troops were sent from England,
A change of tactics was at hand!
