When John Joe Daly Met Mick Kelleher - Poem by Francis Duggan
When John Joe Daly met Mick Kelleher in Melbourne old times they did recall
Of their young years in Millstreet Town old memories best of all
They talked about their happy youth in the pub in Queens Parade
The memories of our happy days from our memories never fade.
When John Joe Daly met Mick Kelleher I would like to have been there
To while with them a couple of hours and old memories with them share
I bet they talked of Duhallow where they first saw light of
And Millstreet Town by Clara hill from Melbourne far away.
Mick Kelleher lives with his wife Rosemary and their family in Yannathan far from Millstreet
And he and John Joe Daly they never more may meet
In Melbourne since John Joe and his wife Helen have gone home to Millstreet Town
Where the Finnow from the high ground babbles as it journeys down
Through the old fields by the old Town to the Blackwater to the sea
From the high lake by Gneeves bog it flows eternally
Through the countryside near Millstreet the old river ever flow
And us like Nature's Seasons to life we come and go.
