Treasure Island

Kevin Cronin

Missed by his friends and neighbours and grieved by his family and his good wife Ann
Kevin Cronin gone from Millstreet he was such a decent man
A hard working individual one who worked hard every day
And to help out other people he often went out of his way
Raised his family in Clara View spent his young years in Dooneen
A tall man over six foot of sturdy build and lean
Born and raised and lived in Millstreet as did Ann Corkery his wife
And he always loved his farming for him 'twas his way of life
There was much to like about him as I readily can recall
And sad to think another good person in Millstreet to the Reaper's scythe did fall
In Millstreet he was born and raised and there he grew old and gray
And in the Tanyard of his hometown his remains forever lay
Hope he did have a good ending that from life his was a painless release
Kevin Cronin was a good man may he ever rest in peace

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
