The Montague packet left Wexford at ten.
With a fine stock of cattle and a fine crew of men
Ch: Hee, Ho, Heave away, ho.

She sailed down the river so gay and so grand,
Till she came to the Dogger and stuck in the sand.

Bob Kirwan cried out, Oh, what's to be done!
I've lost my fine cow that I bought in Taghmon.

Jack Leary, six sheep and young Belton, a cow,
Nickie Byrne, a big goat, and Bob Brennan, a sow.
