"And Killavil, you've given full measure
of talent and pleasure the while,
Our country has learned to treasure,
great reels in our South Sligo style.

Though the player and his fiddle lie sleeping and
his old home's near crumbled and gone,
Our tradition is safe in his keeping
Coleman's music will always live on."
