  1. Born as Nora Roche in Carriganima she first saw light of day
    A kind and caring person and quiet in her way
    In Derrinagree she lived with her family for many years
    And her passing from life would not have gone without tears

    She was one who did live an honorable life
    To her children a good mother and to David Tarrant a good wife
    In her lifetime one who did make many a friend
    But sadly her journey for her has come to an end

    A beautiful soul untainted by conceit
    One of those nice people always a pleasure to meet
    But sadly not one to be seen in the flesh again
    Though in all who knew and knew of her fond memories of her will remain

    She was one who regularly planted karma’s good seed
    And of more of her sort humanity is in need
    Her own praises she was one never to sing
    Humility is such a wonderful thing

    Though the dead never do hear the funeral bell
    For all of us from life a final farewell
    Hope Nora Tarrant in her death from life had a painless release
    By Cashman’s Hill in St Mary’s in Millstreet she now is at peace
