Dennie Mccarthy

Never more to be seen in Kilmeedy though from there he does not lay far away
And he surely did have a good innings that would be a fair thing to say
Dennie McCarthy was in his early nineties when the grim reaper paid him the call
The reaper who sooner or later will one day claim the lives of us all
Survived by his wife Teresa and their son Jerry he lived to the good age of ninety three
A hard working and an honourable fellow one loved by friends and family
His brother the late Michael lived in Church Street in Millstreet he too was a likeable man
The popular McCarthys of Kilmeedy were granted a lengthy time span,
His spirit will live on in Kilmeedy though from the old home he has gone
The one known as Dennie McCarthy in the thoughts of those who knew him will live on
He was not one who liked the limelight and he never yearned for renown
And he lived his long life in Kilmeedy a few miles from old Millstreet Town,
An honourable and a likeable fellow and one who had in him so much good
He never did harm anybody and he would help you if he could.
