  1. Dan Murphy left Claramore where his life’s journey began
    To live and work in New York when he was a young man
    When he returned to Ireland he married Eileen Reen of Millstreet Town the love of his life
    The mother of his children and his devoted wife

    In Ovens in County Cork his last remains in eternal rest lay
    Some forty kilometers from where he first saw light of day
    The man who had seen sights beyond Claramore
    And had experienced life far from Hibernia’s Shore

    A tall and handsome blond haired fellow when in his life’s prime
    But eventually we all become victims of time
    His family and friends would have farewelled him in tears
    In Farnanes where he had lived for many years

    There is a last night and day in life for us all
    But all who knew him have good memories to recall
    Of the down to earth and honest and likeable Dan
    May he rest in peace now he was a good man.

    1. Thank you Francis for your verse about my Dad.
      He was a great man who loved the simple life and worked hard.
      There is comfort in him being kindly and fondly remembered by others, as he was so loved by us at home.
