Timmy Duggan

Like his brother Andy, Timmy Duggan was a barber in Millstreet Town a good and decent man
He lived for eighty nine years in time a lengthy span
From Lisnaboy near Cullen at West End Millstreet he spent most of his life
Where he lived with Bina Creedon his soulmate and his wife
In his barber shop to his customers he had great stories to tell
A character in his own quiet way he could spin a yarn well
He may have been born in Cullen where he was well liked and well known
But in Millstreet where he lived for years people there claimed him as one of their own
In Millstreet memories of Timmy The Barber remain as evergreen
on Summer evenings in the Town Park walking his greyhounds one often seen
An astute greyhound handler one of the best in Millstreet
At the Cork Track greyhounds he trained in big races did compete
Timmy Duggan was a Millstreet barber born and raised in Lisnaboy
Spinning yarns as he clipped hair was a thing he did enjoy.
