"Father O'Flynn would make hares of them all." (U8.713)

The Irish song Father O'Flynn (1875) with lyrics by Alfred Perceval Graves and music by C. Villiers Stanford goes thus:

"Of priests we can offer a charmin variety,
Far renownd for learnin and piety;
Still, Id advance ye widout impropriety,
Father OFlynn as the flowr of them all.

Chorus: Here's a health to you, Father OFlynn,
Slainte and slainte and slainte agin;
Powrfulest preacher, and tenderest teacher,
And kindliest creature in ould Donegal.
