A Grand Ball  (1896) 

A poem from an invitational ticket to "A Grand Ball" in connection with Tobermore Flute Band that was held on Friday, 23rd October 1896.

You Protestants arouse from sleep, do not in slumber lie,
Think on the freedom that was gained on the 12th day of July,
It's now one and all we on you call to attend our Ball so grand,
Which will be held on Friday evening by Tubbermore Flute Band.

You ladies, young and beautiful, we kindly you invite,
To come to our grand So ree and Ball to spend a happy night,
So heed the invitation, and come with hearts so true,
Unto the boys of Tubbermore, who love to wear the blue.
