    The Fellow Who Doesn't Fit In

    He doesn't play sports drink alcohol or take dope and you might say he doesn't fit in
    And he doesn't lust after young women and he's not seen as a man amongst men
    He works hard to provide for his family and he leads a good and a clean life
    And he is a nice man to talk to and he is faithful to his wife. read more »

    The Young Fellow Next Door

    The young fellow next door barracks for Hawthorn
    And after school he kicks the egg shaped ball
    He wants to be as great as Jason Dunstall
    And that his name football historians will recall. read more »

    Forgotten People

    In Council Flats live the forgotten people
    At the slum end the poorer side of town
    They live on welfare like their dads before them
    And from where they live a long hike to renown. read more »

    Down at his local Raymond makes a whole lot of noise
    His loud voice heard above the din 'boys always will be boys'
    He and his mates meet every evening for an hour's drinking or two
    And their subjects seldom vary as pub talk seldom do. read more »

    Cormac Dinneen

    They wanted him in Kerry to play with their football team
    But Cormac he loved Millstreet and he wore their famous green
    And he too wore the red Cork jersey with passion and with pride
    A legend in his playing days and he was known far and wide. read more »

    Toots Kelleher From Millstreet

    In the late forties and all through the fifties and that's going back in time

    Each To His Or To Her Own

    I only came into the pub for to have a quiet beer
    But talk of football all I hear I ask what brought me here
    And I thought there was more to life than talking of football
    But with that at the Local Pub few would agree at all. read more »

    Mick Cashman

    In the Cork County Senior Football Championship Final of 1957 I still recall the day
    The last time I see Mick Cashman for his home club Millstreet Play
    At the Cork Athletic grounds that day the Duhallow men were beat
    The City Club St Finbarrs proved too good for Millstreet. read more »

    Football games are neat,

    Giants run the field,
    Crushing Earth beneath them,
    Atlas would be proud.
    Holding the hopes of city states read more »

    The Footy Man

    He wears his club scarf and beanie this cold saturday evening in the late Fall
    As he walks from the train to the football oval for to watch a few hours of football
    One might say a one eyed supporter he urges his footy heroes on
    But he falls silent before the final siren when all hope of a victory seems gone. read more »

    On The Passing Of Dan Leary

    Dan Leary was a legend of old Millstreet but he'll never more be seen in Millstreet Town
    Or in the Townpark on a Summer's evening With a pair of greyhounds walking up and down
    He was a sterling corner back in his prime a stalwart of Millstreet Gaelic Football
    Fearless and hard but fair he never shirked a challenge as those who played against him do recall. read more »

    You can't judge a book by it's cover
    So why can you judge a man by his looks?
    It doesn't matter if he's Short or tall,
    You have to look inside to know him read more »
