  1. Neily Dennehy in his prime years was athletic, dashing and tall
    He won a Cork County Championship medal with Millstreet playing senior Gaelic Football
    Back in the late nineteen forties many decades ago
    Long before time that rusts iron did become his foe

    Devoted to his family and to Nora his deceased wife
    Neily Dennehy was a good man who led a good life
    He always did have a big smile on his face
    Millstreet for him in it was a much better place

    One who in his lifetime had seen many a dawn
    And many a sunset above Lackabawn
    Where in the flesh he is never to be seen again
    But all who knew him good memories of him will retain

    For Millstreet so many great games he did play
    But when i was a boy he was past his prime day
    In Gaelic Football a hero in Duhallow in the days of old
    He helped to bring honor to Millstreet’s green and gold.
