and lingered in its lovely vale
Where tall trees whisper of
the tale of Avondale’s proud eagle.
Where pride and ancient glory fade,
such was the land where he was laid
Like Christ, was thirty pieces paid,
for Avondale’s proud eagle.
Long years that green and lovely vale,
has nursed Parnell, our grandest Gael
And curse the land that has betrayed
Fair Avondale’s proud eagle.

Sei stato ad Avondale
a passeggiare nella sua bella valle
dove gli alti alberi sussurrano la leggenda
dell’Aquila gloriosa di Avondale (1)?
Dove la fama e l’antica gloria tramontano
tale era la terra in cui egli venne deposto
come Cristo (2), furono pagati 30 denari
per l’Aquila gloriosa di Avondale
Per lunghi anni in quella verde e bella valle
fu nutrito Parnell il nostro grande celta,
maledetta la terra che ha tradito
l’Aquila gloriosa della bella Avondale
