  1. Michael Casey lived in Tooreenbawn all of his life
    And there he raised his family with Margaret his deceased wife
    It is so sad to learn that from life he has passed away
    That in the old Millstreet cemetery at the West End his last remains now lay

    Hard working and honest and compassionate and kind
    Any human flaw in Michael Casey would be hard to find
    In his long life he see many a Season come and go
    And he made many a friend and he did not have a foe

    In life the seeds of good Karma he did sow every day
    And to help others he often went out of his way
    Of anyone he never had unkind things to say
    Fond memories of the good man he was with all who knew him will stay

    From Tooreenbawn in the flesh he may be gone
    But his spirit in the place he loved will live on
    One who always seemed happy and was never heard to complain
    Though he too knew of mental and physical pain

    From life one can only hope he had a painless release
    In the old cemetery at Millstreet’s West End he now is at peace
    A good friend to many in his long life span
    Michael Casey of Tooreenbawn was a good man.

    ‘Michael Casey’ is a poem by Francis Duggan
