  1. Sean O Connor a quiet and unassuming person in his own gentle way
    And news of his death is such sad news only true to say
    And Kippagh for his passing all the poorer today
    Good memories in all who knew him of him their life time will stay

    The heart that beat with kindness is forever still
    Of one who loved the old fields in view of Kippagh hill
    In Millstreet Parish and Town he was well liked and well known
    But he lived as he died as one of Kippagh’s own

    Though time from us all removes youthful elan
    In his prime years Sean O Connor was a tall and handsome man
    One who did a lot of good during his life span
    And he died in Kippagh where his life’s journey began

    In his lifetime he never made an enemy and made many a friend
    And sad to learn his life’s journey has come to an end
    And though the last breath of life from his body has gone
    In Kippagh by the hills his spirit lives on.

  2. Francis,

    Our sincere thanks for taking the time to write such a beautiful poem. While we miss Sean dearly, having his life remembered through your poetry is a great comfort to us.

    We hope things are well for you in Australia.
