Noel Dennehy - Poem by Francis Duggan

Noel Dennehy was born and raised in Murphy's Terrace in distance a short walk from Millstreet Town
His kicking of the winning point for Millstreet in an under fourteen Cork County final earned him his place in his club's gaelic football renown
As a young man he farewelled Murphy's Terrace and his many friends and parents and siblings living there
From Millstreet in view of Clara Mountain in Duhallow his life's journey was to take him to elsewhere

He found love and raised his children in Luton in England from Murphy's Terrace that seems far away
And there the journey of life for him ended and there his last remains destined to lay
But the memories will remain with friends and family of one who was a good and kind and caring man
Who passed from life in his sixty ninth year in human years in time not a long span

Good memories of him will live on in Millstreet where he grew into manhood from a boy
Where the games of ball with his young friends in the school-yard was something he did thoroughly enjoy
One of the eldest of quite a large family the Dennehys a very well known Millstreet clan
In Murphy's Terrace like his many brothers and sisters the life's journey for Noel Dennehy began

Our journey in life for us has an ending for all of us a final night and day
But that Noel Dennehy lived the life of a good person of him would be a fair thing for to say
One can only hope his ending was not painful that from life his was a painless release
And far from his old first home in Murphy's Terrace may the good man forever rest in peace.
