  1. In Drominahilla near Millstreet Town she first saw light of day
    And in New York her mortal remains now do lay
    As Mary Hickey she was born into life
    And as Mary Dempsey she became a mother and wife

    Doubtless she had fond memories of the Town of Millstreet
    And the green countryside where the waterways meet
    In Ireland one of those who did not choose to stay
    Good memories die hard as the wise one did say

    As a young woman she left Millstreet for the big World out there
    Like many she was destined for to grow old elsewhere
    In the nineteen fifties and sixties many young people in Ireland did not remain
    But Mary’s loss to Millstreet became New York’s gain

    As Mary Hickey in Drominahilla near Millstreet Town her journey in life began
    And in New York as Mary Dempsey she lived out her time span
    One can only hope that her passing from life for her was a painless release
    In her adopted home may her remains rest in peace.
