  1. A beautiful person this rhyme penned in her honor
    Mamie the wife of the late Eddie O Connor
    She raised a large family of girls and boys that numbered eleven
    If there is a hereafter her soul is in heaven

    For to sing her praises one could think of many reasons
    She lived by the Station Road near Millstreet Town for decades of Seasons
    In life she had her good times and her times of sorrow
    And sad to think for her there will not be a tomorrow

    In life there are gains and in life there are losses
    And it can be said of Mamie she bore her share of crosses
    The mother’s grief of losing children a few times did enfold her
    But she died at a great age and few have lived to grow older

    In the Ardsley Nursing Home in Farran County Cork she died in the depths of December
    A woman that many in Duhallow will remember
    Who for her community work so many befriended
    Sad to learn that the life journey for her has ended

    The Reaper of lives the life from everybody does sever
    By Cashman’s Hill in St Mary’s she is at rest forever
    A beautiful person this rhyme penned in her honor
    Mamie the wife of the late Eddie O Connor.
