Teddy O' Callaghan

He and his late wife Marion owned McCarthy's Bar in Millstreet Town Square for many years
And among family and friends his passing from life would not have gone without tears
Teddy O' Callaghan was a quiet man and kind in his own way
Quiet waters are deep as the wise are known to say

It can be said of Teddy that he was one of Millstreet's own
As the man of the pub in the Town Square he became widely known
In Millstreet as in everywhere else the changes keep happening fast
And all we have left are memories of the past

To the scythe of life's Reaper we eventually must fall
The last day and night is ahead of us all
Teddy perhaps in his eighties of time lived a good span
Near Millstreet Town he was born and grew into a man

To the higher self he did live as quite true
And he was a good person for to give him his due
His mum and his dad in him raised a good son
In his long life in Millstreet he never harmed anyone

Where many of the deceased of the Parish do lay
In the cemetery at St Mary's he is at peace today
A link to the Millstreet of the long ago
So sad to learn of the passing of Teddy Connie Joe.
