BUNCLODY. Irish, Slow Air (3/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The air is "Cailin deas ruad(h)." Bunclody is in County Wexford, where the river Clody joins the Slaney river. Some of the lyrics to this song, an emigrant's farewell, appear in the American ballad "Pretty Saro," according to John Loesberg (1979).

O were I at the moss-house, where the birds do increase,
At the foot of Mount Leinster or some silent place;
By the streams of Bunclody where all pleasures do meet,
And all I would ask is one kiss from you sweet.

Printed source: Ó Canainn (Traditional Slow Airs of Ireland), 1995; No. 99, p. 85.
