Clement Kelleher

Poem By Francis Duggan

In Tooreenbawn in Millstreet in Duhallow he raised his family and lived for most of his life span
Clement Kelleher was a well liked and a well known man
Predeceased by Sheila his loyal and beautiful wife
In her he did find the great love of his life

Of him many good memories for to recall
In his younger years he played Gaelic Football
A man larger than life of him one can say
Among the deceased of Millstreet his last remains lay

One who made many friends and lived in the good way
Millstreet Parish the worst for his passing today
A man who was well worthy of farewell tears
His legacy of good memories will outlive him for years

Clement Kelleher in Duhallow was known far and wide
The card games and forty five drives he enjoyed
Every day of his life a new friend he did gain
The life from him may be gone but the good memories of him will remain

With the many friends and acquaintances he had accumulated over decades of time
He had lived to a good age his children now well past their prime
Yet sad to think the heart that beat with kindness is now forever still
In St Mary's in Millstreet in view of Cashman's Hill.
