Denis Duggan

That he did not live to a great age does seem quite sad to say
One of the famed Duggans of Millstreet Town Denis has passed away
He was in his late sixties when to the Reaper's scythe he did fall
The fate of Denis Duggan is the fate that awaits us all.

I recall the young Denis Duggan as one happy and carefree
Though more than two decades have gone by since him I last did see
In the minds of friends and family memories of him will live on
In spirit he will live on in Millstreet Town though the life from him has gone.

The Duggans of the Bridge in Millstreet Town beyond Duhallow are well known
Through their business successes their name to legendary status has grown
And Denis in his life a great success like all of his family
To be successful in their lives is part of their destiny.

A good person in every way and a nice person to know
One can only hope that death for him was not painful and slow
In the minds of friends and family good memories of him will remain
For upon the journey of his life many friends he did gain.
