Recited by Miss St. George Hussey.

Mulcahey had a sooner dog,
He'd sooner right than ate;
Mulcahey said he'd match him
Against any terrier in the State.
His teeth were like a saw mill.
He'd a double action jaw,
He'd chew up china door knobs,
Or anything he saw.
Mulcahey had a neighbor,
His name was Terrence Flynn,
Terry owned a bull pup
With a very ugly grin.
Terry called him Beauty,
Though an uglier, mangier cur
Never was led in a dog pit,
Or wore a coat of for.

Beauty ate the dog house,
And broke the chain one day,
And chewed a Chinese Tom cat,
In Mulcahey's yard across the way;
Mulcahey says to Terry,
"Your cur can ate a cat,
But he can not wrestle my dog,
And I'll bet my boots on that."

Says Flynn, " I'll bet my mother in-law
Against an overshoe
My dog will swallow your dog,
Before the match is through.
A pit was dug according,
And the dogs were both slung in,
Says Mnlcahey, then, to Jerry,
May the best dog win.

Mulcahey's dog got a waist hoult
Of Beauty by the jaw,
And he hit him with a black jack
That he held in his paw.
The dog cried " Holy murther,"
Then Jerry Flynn did bawl,
"Mulcahey, fight your dog fair,
Or do not fight at all."
Then dogs and men got fighting,
And divil such a sight
Ever a white man witnessed,
As was in Mulcahey's yard that night.
There was howling, there was growling,
Three hogsheads of blood was shed,
And when the sun got up in the morning
Both dogs and men were dead.
