  1. One like Conor Hartnett makes one feel proud to be from Millstreet
    In Rio in Brazil he helps out the poor souls of poverty street
    In distance from the Clara road thousands of sky kilometres away
    The best of Duhallow of him one can say

    All of the money he saves working for the Westpac Bank in Sydney Australia on helping Rio’s homeless he does spend
    To poor people Conor Hartnett is a true friend
    For his selfless ways great credit he is due
    Yet seemingly unassuming and to his higher self he is true

    One i do know of but never may meet
    On radio he seems so humble and free of conceit
    His mum must be proud of him as would his late dad Noel were he living today
    But the Reaper claimed his life early which does seem sad to say

    People like Conor Hartnett are great people indeed
    They devote their lives in the helping of people who of helping are in need
    If everyone were like him there would not be wars in the World or homelessness or poverty
    And so much happier and better off all of humanity would be

    Those who are compassionate and caring in life seldom know of renown
    But Conor has been doing some great work far south of Millstreet Town
    Of the praises of his sort of person we ought to sing loud
    And to know he is from Millstreet makes me feel so proud.
