Michael Buckley Of Aubane - Poem by Francis Duggan

He must have been into his eighties of human years a lengthy span
Michael Buckley of Aubane he was a good man
In life he performed his good deeds every day
I only say of him what does seem fair to say

The praises of such a man ought to be sung
He was in his prime years when i was quite young
So humble in his ways unconceited and shy
The term of saint like to Michael apply

Though one that i had not seen for many years
News of his passing in Aubane would have reduced many to tears
For in the valleys by Mushera he was well loved and well known
And in Aubane they always do grieve the passing of one of their own

One in his life who never did make a foe
To Aubane he had seen many Seasons come and go
A nicer person than he was one could not wish to meet
He will be sadly missed in the Parish of Millstreet

From his old home in Aubane just a few miles away
By Cashman's Hill in St Mary's his last remains lay
In life he was a good person down to earth and kind
And better than he was would be hard to find.
