‘Wrap me up in me oil skins and jumper. No more on the docks I’ll be seen. Just tell me old shipmates, I’m taking a trip mates, and I’ll see them some day on Fiddler’s Green.’

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
