The Bard of Thomond
Bronze statue of the Bard of Thomond, it's located on St John Castle Plaza.
The bard of Thomond (ie Michael Hogan) was a poet
"I am Bard to none but the God above
Who sent me the gift of the Song
From His angel-choir, and taught me
The right, and to hate the wrong!
I sing no tinsell'd autocrat's praise,
I crouch at no lordling's knee:
Nor birth nor blood, but the True and
And the Loving, are themes for me!"
From "A Life Picture"
