What is this mock-Gaelic limerick I am thinking of?

There's a famous limerick I'm after which I suspect was the work of a major or minor Irish poet. It mocks the Gaelicisation of Irish place names and has a last line which goes (Anglicised) something like "which makes driving in Ireland so dreary".

All of the lines I remember are mock-Irish and have words which look like they're Irish words but are really just English words made to look Irish.
What is this poem? Put me out of my frustration, and then, if you found it through Google, tell me how you did it!
