This cairn is a monument
dedicated to local fishermen
from this port who have
paid the ultimate price
and lost their lives in
pursuit of their livelihood.

Down to the sea
in ships they go
these chosen men of steel,
though mist & foam
and North West wind
is founding at the keel.

So sail they must
each crispy morn
away from trees & sod,
the sea may own
their wind burned flesh,
but their souls
belong to God.
