  1. Jerry Corkery lived in Coomlogane all of his life
    And there he raised his children with Joan Cahill his wife
    In St Mary’s by Cashman’s Hill his last remains now lay
    He must have been in his eighties when he passed away

    In his prime one of the strongest and hardest working in the countryside of Millstreet
    His old home not far from where the rivers do meet
    He was one well liked and to many was known
    And in his death Millstreet has lost one of it’s own

    An honorable fellow for to give him his due
    I only can say of the man what is true
    A good family man and to many a good friend
    So sad to learn his life’s journey has come to an end

    He will be missed from Millstreet Parish and Town
    To live as a good person his claim to renown
    The World was better for him living in it of him one can say
    But for all of us there is a last night and day

    Though in the flesh in Millstreet never more to be seen
    In all who knew him good memories of him will remain evergreen
    From life for us all there is a final release
    The good man Jerry Corkery may he now rest in peace.
