The Rock of Arranmore

Excerpt from The Rock of Arranmore: A Narrative Dramatic Poem in Three Scenes With Introduction The approaching conflict at the Yellow Ford, near the river Blackwater in Armagh, August the tenth, 1598, between the nation of the Gael under Fardora's son, the Prince of Ulad, on the one side, and the European veteran armies of Queen Elizabeth on the other, is brought before the judgment of heaven. A commission is given to the patron or guardian saint of both nations to go forth and award the coming victory; founding their decision on the results thereof to future generations, which are to be foreshown to them in vision. On such conditions, the victory is regarded as already passed, and won by Queen Eire, (pronounced Era) and the trial begins. The celestial court is held on the double star in the constellation Cygnus, which forms a cross in the northern sky. Action of the drama: the finding of judgment on the future events of one hundred and forty-seven years, from Yellow Ford to Fontenoy. Time of the action: the same as taken in the recital, about two hours; but to the celestial spirits, one moment only. Place; Dun Angus on the rock in the Isle of Arranmore.
