  1. 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.
