Tim Callaghan

In Inchaleigh near the Town of Millstreet Tim Callaghan first saw light of day
His life journey ended for him in Killowen near Blarney from Millstreet not that far away
As a Garda Chief Superintendent he was one who was known far and wide
Beyond the borders of Duhallow's green old countryside
Like many before him and after in the home place he did not stay
One who choose to live elsewhere life it can be this way
In Liscahane near the Town of Millstreet he grew into a man
Though in Duhallow he was one not destined to live out his life span
Tall and dark haired and handsome when in the bloom of his life's prime
Though this is going back many Seasons and at least four decades in time
An intelligent and honorable person up the Garda ranks he did rise
To learn of his many successes does not come as any surprise
His last remains to be cremated and only good memories of him remain
And sadly for his family and his friends not to be seen in the flesh again.
