Lily Guerin - Poem by Francis Duggan

A woman who was indeed larger than life
Lily, John Justice's daughter who became Dan Guerin's wife
A beautiful down to earth person untainted by guile
She had such great warmth in her wonderful smile.

One might say of her in a class of her own
The woman of the shop there was well liked and well known
By all in Ballydaly three miles from Millstreet
As nice a person as one could wish to meet.

One known for her kindness and generosity
In Ballydaly she raised her family
Her family and friends will farewell her in tears
But good memories of her will outlive her by years.

In the shop where for many years she did reside
Amongst family and friends and relations Mrs Guerin died
To be kind and loving and hospitable her claim to fame
A Lily by nature and a Lily by name.
