Des Kelleher

Des Kelleher left Kilmeedy as a young man
And in Australia lived the most of his life span
On his life's fifty ninth year he lived his last night and day
From old Clara Mountain many miles away

Does he have descendants of such cannot say
Only know by Cashman's Hill in St Mary's his last remains lay
To Kilmeedy a short jog from the Town of Millstreet
To one who is young and lively on his feet

I knew Desmond Kelleher going back in time
When he was a young man and close to his prime
One easy going and likeable and free of conceit
And always a very nice person to meet

From life for us all there's a final release
In St Mary's in Millstreet he now is at peace
One who in life was a pleasure to befriend
In Australia his life's journey came to an end.
