Daniel O'Connell's Chariot
By Elizabeth McKenna, 6th Class
What a chariot! Red, blue and gold,
with golden designs, ornate and bold,
drawn through the streets of Dublin City
by six splendid horses and not one person showed pity.
He sat there on his gilded seat,
what a lucky man to have such a crowd
to watch him go through Dublin’s beautiful city.
Who is this man you ask, well of course
it’s Ireland’s most celebrated and
adored man of his time – Daniel O’Connell.
