Wee Hughie written by Elizabeth Shane

Love this lovely old poem for this time of year when little ones are starting school for the first time-it never fails to bring a tear to the eye-Wee Hughie

Her three collections were Tales of the Donegal Coast and Islands (1921); By Bog and Sea in Donegal (1923); and Piper’s Tunes (from Down and Antrim) (1927).
