Kathleen O Sullivan

For her husband Jeff and their family a sorrowful day
That Kathleen O Sullivan from life passed away
To her children a good mother and to Jeff a good wife
She was a good person who lived a good life

She and Jeff had been married for decades of years
And her many friends and relations would have farewelled her in tears
In the cemetery in Cullen her last remains lay
For all of us there is a last night and day

The Rose of Caherbarnagh when she was in her prime
Though this is going back many decades in time
But with those who knew her or knew of her the mental pictures remain
Of beauty never to be seen in the flesh again

A woman whose praises deserve to be sung
One of many who has proved that the good do not always die young
I recall her as one beautiful to behold
Though she lived to a good age she was not that old

From Ballydaly Lower and Cullen her's will be a sadly missed face
And in a family none to fill a mother's place
Hope her parting from life was a painless release
The good person Kathleen she now is at peace.
