Dan Murphy

Dan Murphy left Claramore where his life's journey began
To live and work in New York when he was a young man
When he returned to Ireland he married Eileen Reen of Millstreet Town the love of his life
The mother of his children and his devoted wife

In Ovens in County Cork his last remains in eternal rest lay
Some forty kilometers from where he first saw light of day
The man who had seen sights beyond Claramore
And had experienced life far from Hibernia's Shore

A tall and handsome blond haired fellow when in his life's prime
But eventually we all become victims of time
His family and friends would have farewelled him in tears
In Farnanes where he had lived for many years

There is a last night and day in life for us all
But all who knew him have good memories to recall
Of the down to earth and honest and likeable Dan
May he rest in peace now he was a good man.
