John D Murphy

He never will look on old Clara again
And in Spring hear the birds sing in the wind and the rain
But those who knew him fond memories of him will retain
And his spirit in old Claramore will remain

In Claramore John D Murphy's life journey began
And of years of life his was quite a lengthy span
The good way of living he choose to embrace
And in Millstreet Town his was a known and loved face

A likeable fellow in his own happy way
John D who performed his good deeds every day
The seeds of good Karma for himself he did sow
People like he was nice people to know

One not out of place in the pub atmosphere
He enjoyed his sessions of guinness and beer
Whilst some seemed aggressive and looking for fight
He drunk and he laughed and enjoyed his pub night

A man who liked people and who enjoyed a joke
The likeable John was a very good bloke
By Cashman's Hill in St Mary's his last remains lay
From his old home by Clara just a few miles away.
