Billy Coleman Of Minor Row

In motor rallying he drove his way into Worldwide renown
Billy Coleman of Minor Row in Millstreet Town
One of the World's great rally drivers in his life's prime
Though this is going back many Seasons in time

For this quietly spoken fellow humble in his ways
In Millstreet Town the bonfires of victory often did blaze
And the pipe band for him up through Main Street did play
The champion rally driver back then an aging legend today

Though praise heaped upon him and nice things of him said
The adulation of his fans never went to his head
Billy the one who competed with success against the World's best
And was never found to be wanting when put to the test

Billy Coleman in his late sixties remains as one greatly admired
Generations of young Duhallow rally drivers he has inspired
His life journey in Millstreet Town began in Minor Row
Where from a boy into manhood he did grow.
