Mick Barry - Poem by Francis Duggan

Mick Barry was a road bowler in his time Ireland's best
And he was never found wanting when he was put to the test
The pride of Cork road bowlers and old road bowling fans still recall
That his scores with Armagh's Danny McPartland were the greatest scores of all,
Mick Barry not a big man but deceptively strong
And amongst the greats of road bowling his name rightfully belong
Few could hope to match it with him when he was in his prime
But everyone sooner or later bow to father time,
Mick Barry was a great bowler the facts and records do not lie
Amongst the fans of road bowling his name will never die
He threw the steel ball further than anyone his name lives in renown
And when big bets were on and the stakes were high he never left his backers down,
Mick Barry was a champion road bowler one who loved to compete
And tis said of him that in his time he was the one to beat.
