The Harp, The Lion, The Dragon

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

The harp, the lion, the dragon and sword, a unity of death
Upon the banners present in the growing English threat
The Earl of Essex finished, Mountjoy would lead the way
He won the Queens favour her message he would convey

With his two lieutenants -Chichester and Carew
Mountjoy would change the course of war, an end was now in view
But not before an epic task - Rebellion in the south!
His forces were dispatched to stamp the bloody rebellion out!

MacCarthy and Carew reached an accord regarding Munster
A neutral stance was taken by the cowardly Gaelic leader
The forces of the crown could then focus on Fitzthomas
The main rebel leader fought with all his might and valour

The forces of Carew attacked Fitzthomas with such strength
They killed twelve hundred rebels bringing an end to their dissent
Fitzthomas, he was captured, to London he was bound
The rebellion in Munster now an empty battleground
