Noreen Hannon - Poem by Francis Duggan

A young woman who was born with the inner glow
Her friends and admirers in numbers did grow
Time that rusts iron was not to become her foe
That she was to grow old for her not to be so

Noreen Hannon a beautiful young nurse from Duhallow on the right side of time
Her life in the cruelest and foulest way taken from her in her physical prime
In Sydney from her home in distance far away
Good memories of her remain living today

With wavy brown hair and a wonderful smile
A young Duhallow beauty free of conceit and guile
Her gift of life cruelly taken from her by one she never knew
Real bad people like he is thankfully are of the few

In robbing the beautiful ill fated Noreen of her gift of life
He robbed her of her chance of having children or becoming anyone's wife
An innocent victim of the foulest crime of hate
She surely was worthy of a far better fate

Noreen Hannon has been deceased for many years
Good memories of her have outlived the farewell tears
In her case the good do die young is only too true
But a far better ending should have been her due.
