Ballydaly's Mary Flaherty

For Ballydaly's Mary Flaherty in Killarney's Aghadoe Heights a family birthday party
For one in her eighty second year of life she looks attractive, hale and hearty
A nice person in every way not one of the conceited
And on her birthday she is one well worthy of being feted
Ballydaly's finest on her day she still looks quite attractive
In mind and body she feels young she keeps healthy and active
Photos of her belie her age she does look well and glowing
Of Mary one can truly say her years she is not showing
That some women look old in their thirties does seem beyond explaining
And Mary Flaherty in her eighties most of her beauty is retaining
That the camera never lies is true this woman is inspiring
In truth her sort are in the few she is one worth admiring
A nice person in every way down to earth and unassuming
Like an Autumn rose that does not fade in her eighties she is blooming.
