  1. Christy Philpott was a good man who lived in Ballyday Lower for practically all of his life
    Devoted to his children and grandchildren and to Kathleen his wife
    As a man who knew a lot about horses he became widely known
    And in his passing Ballydaly has lost one of it’s own
    I remember as a boy with the cold chill of Winter in the breath of Spring air
    Christy riding bareback on a bay horse to be sold at the Millstreet Town March fair
    Going back near sixty years that does seem a long time
    And Christy back then he was in his life’s prime
    A likeable person of him one can say
    And Ballydaly much the poorer for his passing today
    The journey in life for us all has to end
    But what counts most to many he was a good friend
    And though the great gift of life from him has gone
    In all who knew him good memories of him will live on.
