The Image of Irelande by John Derricke, 1581, plate 10
O Sidney, worthy of tryple renowne,
For plagying traytours that troubled the crowne. 1581
When thus this trice-renowned knight, hath captive made and thrall,
The furious force of franticke foes, and troupe of rebells all;
When he by marshall feates of armes hath nobly them subdude,
To Princes Dome, whose heavy wrath, their treasons have renewde,
When he their glory and their pride hath trampled in the dust,
And brought to naught, which doe pursue the bloudie rebells lust;
When he by conquest thus hath wonne the honour of the field,
And fame unto our Soveraygnes Courte report thereof doth yeld;
And to conclude, when honor brave, his travells to requight,
Hath clothde him with eternall fame, meete for so great a Knight:
When all these thinges are done and paste, then doth he backe revart
To Dublyn, where he is received with joy on every parte.
The town outside the castle gate is labelled "Dublyn".
