  1. John Daly played Gaelic Football with Cork and Millstreet
    A stylish and classy forward he was quick on his feet
    And with Evergreen United he starred in League of Ireland Football
    He was a fine sportsman and a gentleman overall

    An octogenarian he was one who had a long life span
    In Inchaleigh by Millstreet Town he grew into a man
    Though in two codes of football against the best he did play
    A humble enough man in his own quiet way

    One who was devoted to his family and the late Kathleen his wife
    The honourable man led an honourable life
    He was one who made for himself many a friend
    But sadly for him his life’s journey has come to an end

    From Inchaleigh sixty kilometres away
    In Cork the remains of John Daly lay
    In human years his was quite a lengthy span
    On his day he was a fine sportsman and he lived as a good man.
