Jerry Corkery

Jerry Corkery lived in Coomlogane all of his life
And there he raised his children with Joan Cahill his wife
In St Mary's by Cashman's Hill his last remains now lay
He must have been in his eighties when he passed away

In his prime one of the strongest and hardest working in the countryside of Millstreet
His old home not far from where the rivers do meet
He was one well liked and to many was known
And in his death Millstreet has lost one of it's own

An honorable fellow for to give him his due
I only can say of the man what is true
A good family man and to many a good friend
So sad to learn his life's journey has come to an end

He will be missed from Millstreet Parish and Town
To live as a good person his claim to renown
The World was better for him living in it of him one can say
But for all of us there is a last night and day

Though in the flesh in Millstreet never more to be seen
In all who knew him good memories of him will remain evergreen
From life for us all there is a final release
The good man Jerry Corkery may he now rest in peace.
