Memories of Westmeath

Lyrics

I was no more than just a boy
When to my hometown said good-bye
To see if fields were greener far away
Now many dreams and years are gone
I’m going home where I belong
To Westmeath, I am coming home

When as a boy I used to roam
From Mullingar down to Athlone
And on through Tyrellpass and on to Kinnegad
The beauty of Lough Ennell’s shores
The mysteries surrounding Fore
Are some of the reasons I love Westmeath

Oh Westmeath, how I love you
The Maroon and White for me
And no matter where I wander
Over land or cross the sea
You know you’re always in my heart
And we will never be apart
Iar-Mhi, you mean everything to me

My childhood days are long since past
But still the memories, they last.
Of days that I spent fishing on Lough Ree
I loved Lough Owel and Belvedere
The memories, they bring a tear
Oh, how I long to be back there again

Oh Westmeath, how I love you
The Maroon and White for me
And no matter where I wander
Over land or cross the sea
You know you’re always in my heart
And we will never be apart
Iar-Mhi, you mean everything to me

Oh, Westmeath how I love you
The Maroon and White for me
And no matter where I wander
Over land or cross the sea
You know you’re always in my heart
And we will never be apart
Iar-Mhi, you mean everything to me
