Treasure Island

Francis Duggan


Connie Kelly And Morty Cronin


In my flights of fancy the memories come back
To me of when Connie Kelly the dog man ran the Millstreet dog track
And Morty Cronin the hare driver drove the lure around
May they rest in peace now in dead people's ground.

The last men to run the Millstreet greyhound trial track to the reaper have gone
The well known and well loved characters Morty and Con
The Millstreet greyhound trial track is now a thing of the past
And only the memories of what was does last.

Though good memories of him live in Duhallow today
Twenty years ago Connie Kelly died in a tragic way
The great man from Ploverfield had a 'heart of gold'
But the reaper did not allow him to grow old.

Morty Cronin died suddenly of a heart attack
The last link to Tommy and Kitty Hennessy's greyhound schooling track
A greyhound trialing track at Inchaleigh never to be seen again
And only the memories of what was now remain.
