Kevin Hickey

Such sad news out of Millstreet Kevin Hickey has passed away
In view of Cashman's Hill in St Mary's his last remains do lay
Born and raised in Dromnahilla he spend many years in the U S A
And Millstreet much the poorer for his passing one can say

In Dromnahilla by Millstreet Town Kevin spend his younger years
And among his family and friends his passing would not have gone without tears
One who did have many memories of Millstreet of the past
Perhaps in his early seventies when he breathed his last

Kevin Hickey was a good man his friends in numbers did grow
Just one of those nice people who did have the inner glow
In everyone who knew him good memories of him bound to stay
The dead at rest forever and time on the living ticks away

With the passing of the decades few things do seem to last
And in Millstreet in Duhallow the changes are happening fast
That time does age the living only seems true to say
Like Kevin for each and every one of us a final night and day

Such sad news out of Millstreet in view of Clara Hill
A heart that beat with kindness by death has been rendered still
From Kevin Hickey of Dromnahilla the last breath of life has gone
But good memories of the man he was in all who knew him will live on.
