Denny Hickey

Denny Hickey from Gortnacreha he died far away
In Birmingham in England he lived his last night and day
But he is at home in Cullen to stay
In the cemetery in the Village his last remains lay
The Hickeys of Gortnacreha are well liked and well known
And Denny in Cullen is now among his own
The Cullen where he went to school as a boy
He would have remembered old memories with joy
In Cullen where he had lived his younger years
By friends and old neighbors and family he would have been farewelled in tears
His yearn for adventure took him to elsewhere
For to experience life in the big World out there
Death from suffering does bring a final release
The good man Denny Hickey may he rest in peace.
