  1. To her children Margaret was a good mother and to the late great Millstreet Gaelic Footballer Dick Barrett a good wife
    In Millstreet Town she had seen many sunsets as she was a woman who was granted a long life
    The Barretts they were well known Millstreet drapers and through their business Margaret was well known
    Of the Town one of the senior citizens and of her it can be said she was one of Millstreet’s Own
    Even though she had a long life she will be missed by her family in a family none to take a mother’s place
    In her younger years she was a pretty woman and in Millstreet Town her’s a known and loved face
    The farewell bell that tolled for Margaret Barrett for all of us destined to toll one day
    We live for awhile and death it is forever and time on our lives does ever tick away
    One can only hope that she died without suffering every good person does deserve a good end
    And Margaret Barrett she was a good person and in her lifetime did make many a friend
    And this is all one can expect of any person to live good and help others if you can
    And Margaret Barrett she was kind to others one who did a lot of good in her lifetime span
    From where she lived with Dick Barrett and raised her children less than a twenty minute walk away
    In Drishane a very old Millstreet cemetery her mortal remains are at rest today.

  2. Thank you Francis for your kind words.
    My mother was a fan of your poetry and I remember her purchasing “Rhymes of a Labourer” many years ago.No doubt many other families of bereaved relatives have found comfort in your poetry.On behalf of the Barrett family thanks again for the poem and keeping her in your thoughts.
