Tony O' Callaghan

Born and raised in Rathduane between Millstreet and Rathmore
Tony O Callaghan in years in his late fifties or almost three score
Has recently died this was so sad to read
In his lifetime by good example one who did lead
Suppose he was not born for to live a long life
And i do not know if he did father children or he had a wife
Since i had not seen Tony for three decades of years
Yet in his passing he is one well worthy of tears
Yet of a good person the good memories will remain
Rathduane's loss in his case was Killarney's gain
But the good memories till i die with me will remain
Of A good person i knew but will not meet again
Of time his was not a very long span
But in life very honorable and a good man.
