  1. Ballydaly Sports And Fun Sunday

    Back there in old green Ballydaly by Boggeragh hills far away
    They did have their Sports and Fun Sunday on the last day of Spring and of May
    From the images from there on the Millstreet Web Site not many faces I do know
    Since I last lived near Ballydaly it now seems a long time ago.

    Almost twenty three years since I lived near Ballydaly in the human life quite a span of time
    The babes born then now young men and women and close to their physical prime
    The passage of time does bring with it changes and from the images of faces from there I can say
    That even in old Ballydaly I would be a stranger today.

    My happy years near Ballydaly with fondness I often recall
    And the old fields I loved west of Millstreet would not have changed that much at all
    But people seem to age in a decade and the years on us quickly do show
    We are not unlike Nature Seasons to life we come and the life from us go.

    Sports and Fun Sunday in Ballydaly in the bright sunshine of the late Spring
    When the hawthorns do wear their white blossoms and the nesting birds whistle and sing
    Only knew six or at most seven faces from the many images from there I did see
    The young generation of Ballydaly to say the least strangers to me.
