  1. Michael Looney
    Michael Looney was a former Sacristan in Millstreet he left his Hometown many years ago
    He went to earn his livelihood in Dublin where he had lived for forty years or so
    In Millstreet Parish one who was missed by many he was a really nice person to know
    On his behalf it was a huge decision for him to leave his home in Minor Row

    Perhaps it was to be in his life’s journey that he was destined to leave the Town by Clara Hill
    On his visits to there he must have witnessed changes time as we know it never does stand still
    There isn’t any place that has not gone through changes since change is known to visit everywhere
    A lot of people Michael knew in Millstreet had gone to live in the big World out there

    Michael Looney was a good and decent person for to help others he went out of his way
    You would not find one who knew him in Millstreet of him with an unkind word for to say
    He was one who was known and liked by many in him Millstreet’s loss was surely Dublin’s gain
    One can only hope in dying he did not suffer since for many life’s journey does end in pain

    It must have been his wish for to be buried in Millstreet since by Cashman’s Hill his last remains does lay
    Our journey in life meant to have an ending for all of us a final night and day
    He was not a very old man Michael Looney maybe a dozen years with the three score
    In life he was a good and decent person and may he rest in peace forever more.
