  1. Above his evergreen fields of old Lackabawn
    He saw many a sunset and many a dawn
    Though in all who knew him good memories of him will remain
    In the flesh Matty O Riordan will not be seen in Millstreet again

    He was quite a gentleman in every way
    And he lived to a good age of him one can say
    In Lackabawn he was raised and grew into a man
    And there spent the greater part of his long lived life span

    The life journey for him ended in the early Fall
    There is a last day and last night for us all
    The mental images of him that remain to recall
    As a young man he was handsome and dark haired and tall

    Gone from Lackabawn another well loved face
    And Millstreet without him a much poorer place
    In his many years of living he never harmed anyone
    And his mother and father in him raised a good son

    Our very young years go quickly as does our life’s prime
    And eventually we all become victims of time
    And for us all from the cares of living a final release
    The good man Matty O Riordan may he now rest in peace.
