Coastline of Mayo, Song from Co. Mayo

In my search for fame and fortune
I've travelled many a mile
To be on the blue horizon that
Keeps calling all the while
I have seen all kinds of grandeur
But I'm longing still, I know,
For the little, friendly places on
The coastline of Mayo.


Belmullet and Broadhaven
Achill Island o'er the wave
Croagh Patrick's holy mountain
By the waters of Clew bay
Clare Island, home of Granuaille
Old Newport well I know
All the friendly little places on
The coastline of Mayo.

How ever far you travel
There's one place best of all
To be again in Westport
Is the wish I oft recall
If that wish cannot be given
May God grant me as I go
One last look from Heaven's casement on
The coastline of Mayo

The Mulloy Brothers from Mulranny recorded this song some years ago.
