  2. Sad news out of Tullig on the Butter Road above the Town of Millstreet
    Donie Golden as nice a person as one could wish for to meet
    Of his more than seven decades life span has lived his last day
    One who lived as a good person in every way

    An honest person who lived an honourable life
    Devoted to his sons and their children and Molly his wife
    His family and friends will grieve for their loss
    But none go through life without bearing some cross

    One who in life never yearned for Worldly renown
    He will be missed from Tullig and Millstreet Town
    Quite humble and as honest as the word can be
    His sort becoming rarer in the twenty first century

    That we are born to mortality happens to be so
    And eventually time becomes everyone’s foe
    Life is the greatest gift anyone does possess
    Far greater than any other form of success

    For all of us from life a final release
    Donie Golden lived as a good person may he now rest in peace
    Millstreet where his was a familiar face
    For him living in it was a better place.
