Nora was a good mother to the Tanyard O Donoghues and to Florry she was a devoted wife
And sad to learn she is no longer with us that she has lost her marvellous gift of life
No more to be seen in the Town of Millstreet near to where she resided for so many years
Where she was one well known and loved by many her passing would have given rise to tears.
As a boy i often saw her in the Town of Millstreet with her shopping bags walking down through Minor Row
She always had a smile for everybody a person everyone did wish to know
The O Donoghue family were built around her to play her role there is none to take her place
Who could forget a warm and friendly person with the glow of kindness on her lovely face.
Millstreet was better for her living in it i only say of her what is her due
She loved her children and she loved her husband and to the higher self she remained true
If everybody could only be like her a better World to live in it would be
Though on in years the loss of a good mother leaves a huge hole in any family.
By Cashman's Hill her remains at rest forever and all is quiet and peaceful where she lay
Of the people I knew as a young man in Millstreet there does not seem too many left today
But in the minds of her friends and her family fond memories of Nora O Donoghue will stay
The mental pictures of her will be living 'tis only the remains go to decay.
