In His Prime Jimmy Twohig

Slightly built and athletic to look at and so quick on his feet
In his prime years Jimmy Twohig he was a great athlete
In Irish Athletics his once was a well known face
In the colours of Balydaly he often raced into first place

An All Ireland eight hundred metres track champion when he was at his best
The toast of Annagloor then the pride of Millstreet West
But the one who did run fast then now showing his years in gray
Time leaves it's mark on everyone as some do like to say

A quietly spoken fellow unaffected by conceit
A humbler man than Jimmy one could not wish to meet
Though to himself and Annagloor and Ballydaly great honour he did bring
He did leave it to others his praises for to sing

All we have are the memories of Seasons of the past
In Ballydaly's glory days when Jimmy Twohig did run fast
One famed far from Duhallow, Annagloor and Millstreet Town
As Irish eight hundred metres champion he raced into renown.
