On The Passing Of Donie Murphy

'Tis sad to think that he is gone forever with the deceased of Milllstreet he now lay
That he will never more be seen at West End does seem a very sad thing for to say
Pre-deceased by his devoted wife Nora his family left to bear their heavy cross
To them he was a kind and loving father and his passing to them is such a sad loss
Donie Murphy was an honest and hard working fellow he went through life without harming anyone
Loved by his wife and children and by all who knew him his mum and dad raised in him a good son
But fond memories of him will live on in those who knew him and I'll remember until my dying day
One who smoked his pipe and always thought before speaking and never hurted anyone in any way
I recall I last spoke to Donie Murphy at the river bridge
by the Town Hill of Millstreet Town
The Finnow in the old fields bank high flowing through Inchaleigh in flood waters of brown
The old Finnow must have carried many big floods since that November day twenty one years ago
But that I was never more to meet again the great man was something then I was not meant to know
It was with feelings of regret and sorrow that the news of Donie's passing I did read
He will be missed from Millstreet Town and Parish in the field of good example he did lead.
