Seamus Maxwell - Poem by Francis Duggan

A banker in Millstreet Town many years ago
Where into young adults his children did grow
And though he is remembered in Millstreet today
Distant from Duhallow his last remains lay.

The words of a wise one for us to recall
There is a last day and last night for us all
Seamus Maxwell one devoted to his family and wife
But sad to learn he has lost his gift of life.

A down to earth fellow and free of conceit
Fond memories of him do live on in Millstreet
On his life's journey he did make many a friend
But for all of us such a journey has an end.

In Millstreet where he was well liked and well known
They did look upon him as one of their own
Respect was his due since respect to others he did pay
He was a good person of him one can say.
