Antaine Ó Raifteirí (1784-1835)
Fág uaim do eaglais ghalla
Away with your English religion,
Raftery is said to have spent some months in Galway jail according to Douglas Hyde because of a poem of his critical of the Protestant church. However it seems more likely that the jail time was due to his writing the poem about the White Boys.
