Oh, have you been to Avondale
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.
