Old Irish poem - Lura bog, lara bog?

Hi all,
Wondering if you can help track down an old Irish poem my Mam learnt as a child, but we can't seem to find it written down anywhere online, and although she has it off by heart, we are not sure of the spellings of each word, and thus their meaning!
It starts (phonetically) sounding like " Luaire bog, laragh bog, " and ends with a phrase that sounds like "seach na flaitheas".

Thanks!

It seems that you could have looked harder. There are various versions available on line.

Thanks - I tried as many different spellings as I could think of but never seemed to get any results!
