October winds lament around the Castle of Dromore
Yet peace is in its lofty halls, a pháisde bán a stór,
Though autumn leaves may droop and die,
A bud of spring are you –
Sing hushaby, lul, lul, lo, lo, lan,
Sing hushaby, lul, lul, loo.

Bring no ill wind to hinder us, my helpless babe and me –
Dread spirit of Blackwater banks, Clan Eoin’s wild banshee,
And Holy Mary pitying us, in Heaven for grace doth sue
Sing hushaby, lul, lul, lo, lo, lan,
Sing hushaby, lul, lul, loo.

Take time to thrive, my Rose of hope,
In the garden of Dromore
Take heed, young Eagle – till thy wings
Are weathered fit to soar;
A little time and then our land
Is full of things to do
Sing hushaby, lul, lul, lo, lo, lan,
Sing hushaby, lul, lul, loo.

There are a number of Dromore Castles in Ireland. Clan Eoin is associated with County Tyrone and two versions of this song are presented here.
