Peter O' Sullivan

Peter O' Sullivan a farmer of an old family history
Spent all of his younger years in Ballinagree
But in Cloghoulamore near Millstreet where he raised his family with Ellen his wife
He did spend the greater part of his long life

Though this is going back many decades in time
I do remember Peter when in his life's prime
A dark haired handsome fellow athletic looking and tall
Only good memories of him i have to recall

He would have been an octogenarian and of time lived quite a span
Yet so sad to learn of the passing of one who was a good man
In his working life he worked very hard on his farm every day
And nothing ever easy in life came his way

A down to earth fellow and free of conceit
One of the more humble people of Millstreet
He lived in his own way and done his own thing
And his own praises to others he never did sing

Than Peter one could not wish for a better friend
And so sad to learn his life's journey has come to an end
From his family home in Cloghoulamore just a few kilometers away
By Cashaman's Hill in St Mary's his last remains lay.
