  1. She was such a lovely woman one who did lead a good life
    A good mother to her children and to Jerry Horgan a good wife
    Sad to learn that Peggie Horgan from life has passed away
    In St Mary’s in Millstreet her last remains does lay
    Gone from old Ballydaly another well loved face
    One can truly say of Peggie she was a credit to the place
    And though in the flesh in Duhallow never to be seen again
    In all in Ballydaly good memories of her will remain
    One who will be missed by many for she did have many a friend
    But life it is a journey that for all of us must end
    From Ballydaly she often cycled to and back from Millstreet Town
    In the days when she was younger when her wavy hair was dark brown
    She was such a lovely woman and in truth one has to say
    That Ballydaly for her passing is a poorer place today.

  2. What a beautiful tribute to Peggy (a very special lady)who was so loved by so many. Our hearts have been broken that our beloved Peggy has passed away, so sudden and so fast and it all seems like a bad dream. Our thoughts and prayers have been with Jerry, Mairead and John Paul, Bridie, Jimmy and family, John, Helen and family and Dan and Family and all of Peggy’s family. We were not able to make it back to Ballydaly for the funeral but we lived and felt every minute of it from here. Peggy had the most beautiful spirit, always laughed, never complained, full of compassion, kind, polite and nice to everyone who crossed her path, incredible cook, housekeeper, baker and the list goes on and on.

    Every year as we went back to Ballydaly, the kettle was boiled, the tea made, dinners, scones, apple pies and the lemon meringues. It is with sad hearts that we will go back this year and Peggy is not waiting for us at the door with her beautiful smile but we know that she will be with us in spirit. For us Ballydaly will never be the same again.

    We loved you Peggy and we have treasured memories. You will be forever in our hearts, always remembered and never forgotton

    Kathleen, Dan Joe and Sean Horgan New York
