Tadgh Moynihan

Tadgh Moynihan’s life ended in Australia in a tragic way
And back home in Millstreet his last remains lay
Perhaps in his fifties luck not on his side
In an accident it has been reported he died.
As a young man for Ballydaly his home club gaelic football he played
And all around Duhallow many friendships he forged and made
His family and friends for him left to shoulder grief’s cross
His friendship to those who knew and loved him an irreplaceable loss.
Those who knew and knew of him the memories will recall
Of the slightly built fellow athletic and tall
A true quiet achiever with little to say
One who to help others who often went out of his way.
In Millstreet and Ballydaly never more to be seen
But good memories of him will remain evergreen
With everyone who knew him he was a good man
But sadly of life his was not a long span.

  1. Happy memories keep forever, of when we were together.
    They bring a smile and often a tear.
    But always a wish that you were here.
    Will those who think of Tadhg today a little prayer to Jesus say.
    Lovingly Remembered Today and Everyday.
