  1. Her name was Eily Cronin before she became the late John Joe Greaney’s wife
    She died in Lackabawn Near Millstreet Town where she had lived for most of her life
    A good wife to John Joe and to her children a good mother and a good person in every way
    And her many friends and her grieving family are worse off for her passing today

    In Millstreet she first looked on the light of day
    And in St Mary’s near where she lived her last remains at peace now lay
    In Lackabawn her’s will be a sadly missed face
    In her role in her family none to take her place

    In Millstreet one loved by many and to many well known
    And in her passing Millstreet has lost one of it’s own
    In her long and well lived life her friends in numbers did grow
    And one can say of her she had the inner glow

    In the flesh in Lackabawn never more to be seen
    But in all who knew her good memories of her will remain evergreen
    One can only hope that her parting from life for her was a painless release
    And in life Eily Greaney who was such a good person may she now rest in peace.
