  1. As nice a person as one could wish for to meet
    Chrissie of Drominahilla near the Town of Millstreet
    For many years she lived at the Priests Cross in Millstreet as the late Pat Mullane’s wife
    It is so sad to learn that she has lost her gift of life

    Though she is one who had outlived her physical prime
    For her family and many friends this is such a sad time
    She was kind and honorable in every way
    And Millstreet all the poorer for her passing today

    Since us humans are mortals why otherwise pretend
    This life journey we are on for us all has to end
    Each day for us to our last one day more near
    And the farewell bell one the deceased never hear

    It is not how long or short your life is but on how well you live
    And Chrissie had so much love and kindness in her for to give
    And those who willingly give can expect to receive
    On such a philosophy for living life one can only believe

    Sadly in the flesh never more to be seen at the Priests Cross
    And her death to Millstreet must be counted as a loss
    Above St Mary’s in view of Cashman’s Hill the January sky may be gray
    But Chrissie is at peace in the earth where she lay.
