  1. Glenamuckla in Newmarket was Billy O’ Leary’s first home-place
    But in Millstreet where he lived with his wife and they raised their daughter his was a known and loved face
    The passing from life would not have gone without tears
    Of the man who had worked in Mallow Beet Factory for many years
    In Maurice and Lal Dennehy’s pub he enjoyed many a night
    Where of worries if he had any he used to make light
    Amongst the characters of Millstreet he is one that one can name
    An easy going fellow he always seemed the same
    The sad news of his passing has traveled far and wide
    And that he lived as a good person of him cannot be denied
    One can only hope his parting from life was a painless release
    In St Mary’s by Cashman’s Hill may he rest in peace
    And of him it is only true for to say
    That he was a good person in every way.
