Paddy Kelleher

I knew him as a young man driving trucks for Paddy Den
Paddy Kelleher was always a man amongst men
A handsome looking fellow broad shouldered and tall
One of Millstreet's finest as i do recall

'It is so sad to learn that he has passed away
As was for him for us all there's a last night and day
A good father to his children Jerry and Rosemary and a good husband to Theresa his wife
The honorable man led an honorable life

In Millstreet Town in the flesh never more to be seen
But memories of him will remain evergreen
Amongst his many friends and acquaintances one a pleasure to meet
He will be sadly missed in the Town of Millstreet

In Millstreet his life's journey for him began
And there he went to school and grew into a man
And by Cashman's Hill in the Tanyard his last remains lay
From his first home in distance a short walk away.
