The Young Set Dancers Of Millstreet
They were not found to be wanting when they were put to the test
The Millstreet Schoolgirls set dancers All Ireland’s very best
In Athlone Town at dancing Ireland’s best they did beat
One might say of the Millstreet girls they danced them off their feet.
The young set dancers of Millstreet danced their way into renown
The Pipers Band was out to greet them back home in Millstreet Town
The people of Millstreet and Duhallow were in mood to celebrate
And bonfires blazed to greet the dancing champs of 08.
Allanah Barry, Leanne Daly, Kayleigh Sheahan, Aideen Buckley their names we will recall
They did Millstreet and Duhallow proud in their greatest night of all
Emer Twomey, Muirean Murphy, Orla Kiely, Regina Lane all of their surnames ring a bell
Perhaps i know their parents and some of them quite well.
The team Coach Breeda Cremin in her prime the dancer supreme
In Irish dancing circles one held in high esteem
Paddy Riordan’s daughter of Kilcorney a woman born to dance
Any team that has one like her as a Coach of winning always a good chance.
As well as the young dancers of Millstreet The Instrumental Music Group from Boherbue
In the All ireland Finals in Athlone had a great victory
A great night for Duhallow for Boherbue and Millstreet
Two All Ireland’s for Duhallow in the one night a remarkable feat.
The young set dancers of Millstreet and the Boherbue musicians have done Duhallow proud
And the Duhallow Poets and Songwriters do sing their praises loud
The bonfires by now have burnt out but the memory we’ll retain
Of a great night for Duhallow when we visit memory lane.
