Kathleen Corcoran And Peter Dineen - Poem by Francis Duggan
Two good people who in Millstreet Parish will never more be seen
But amongst friends and families and those who knew them memories of them evergreen
Kathleen Corcoran a good woman who lived in Dooneen
And a quiet man from Cloghoula likeable Peter Dineen.
In their Townlands by Millstreet Town they had lived for many years
And doubtless their funeral services did give rise to parting tears
For death is very final that does seem sad to say
And by Cashman's Hill in St Mary's their remains forever lay.
They are only dead physically in spirit they remain
And in our mental pictures we do see them again
From Cloghoula and from Dooneen they may well be gone
But in the minds of friends and families and those who knew them they are living on.
What can anyone ask of any human being only to live as their best
And what it takes to live as a good person Kathleen and Peter passed that test
One can only hope their departure from life was a painless release
And by Cashman's Hill forever their remains rest in peace.
