  1. As teenagers from Ballydaly to and from the convent school in Millstreet Town
    The undulating Millstreet Rathmore Road they cycled up and down
    The blond haired look alike Tucker twin sisters Noreen and Eileen
    They possessed rare beauty seldom to be seen

    Sad news out of Ballydaly Eileen has passed away
    By Cashman’s Hill in St Mary’s in Millstreet at peace she now lay
    The bell we don’t hear for us all will toll one day
    That death is forever is only true to say

    A beautiful and intelligent woman bubbly and bright
    In Millstreet Town often see her with her friends in the Bush Bar on a Saturday night
    Perhaps a few years then past her physical prime
    And this is going back some three decades in time

    So sad for to learn of the passing of Eileen
    Memories of her beauty in the mind does remain evergreen
    On her life’s journey one who did make many a friend
    But each day we live brings us nearer to our own end

    One of the Tucker twins beautiful Eileen has breathed her last
    On looking back the Seasons time did tick on fast
    Hope her parting from life for her was a painless release
    In St Mary’s in Millstreet she now is at peace.

    1. Hello Francie. I want to reply to your beautiful poem following the death of my much loved twin sister Eileen Tucker RIP. It touched me and my family members so very much. It is now framed and hanging in pride of place in my home. I apologise for not having said “THANKS” before now. From Noreen Gayden.
