Joan Mcsweeney

In her prime years among Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra beauties she was one to the fore
Joan Twomey of Rathduane between Millstreet and Rathmore
As Mrs McSweeney in Killarney she raised her family
But to live to a very old age for her was not meant to be
Perhaps in her early to mid sixties nowadays this is not old
I remember her as dark brown haired, young and lovely to behold
One of those nice people who was free of conceit
Friendly in her ways and a pleasure to meet
She surely was a credit to her mum and her dad
And to learn of her passing from life is to say the least sad
Rathduane's loss in her became Killarney's gain
And in her family, relatives and friends good memories of her will remain
In St Mary's cemetery in Millstreet her last remains lay
From her first home in Rathduane in kilometers not far away.
