Monaghan Michael was always accorded a royal welcome there.    She never forgot Millstreet and kept in touch with the Healy and Cotter Families and others in Millstreet over the years and loved to revisit.   Margaret is buried in Scotstown, Co. Monaghan – where she and John raised their splendid Family.   Ar dheis  Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.   ( S.R.)

  1. The daughter of Mrs and Mr Peter Looney of Millstreet Town’s Minor Row
    The recently deceased Margaret Looney Smyth and her deceased brother Michael i used to know
    When i was much younger ten years or so
    Back in the nineteen fifties a long time ago

    As nice a person as one could wish for to meet
    She used to visit her uncle Den Looney and his wife Peg in Claraghatlea near the Town of Millstreet
    But in Duhallow she was one who was not destined to stay
    And as Margaret Smyth in Scotstown in County Monaghan her last remains lay

    A down to earth person untainted by conceit or guile
    She left us with memories of her beautiful smile
    By her sort the seeds of good friendships are sown
    As she was one who did have a charm of her own

    When Margaret left Millstreet she was young in years
    And her passing in Scotstown would not have gone without tears
    Her journey in life did take her far away
    From where she first looked on the bright lamp of day

    With her amiable ways many friends she did win
    People like her make the World better to live in
    In Scotstown county Monaghan may she rest in peace
    For all of us from life there is a final release.
