  1. This teenager Billy Cronin is one i have heard of but may never meet
    In sports nowadays he is the talk of Millstreet
    He is mentioned as a future Olympic athlete
    Against the best in Ireland with success he compete

    He has proven himself against his Nation’s best
    And as of yet has not been found to be wanting when put to the test
    One who has brought honour to the red of Cork and to Millstreet’s green
    And the very best of him is yet to be seen

    A nice photo and a nice story to go with it Sean Radley on him had to tell
    In sports so good to learn of one from Millstreet doing so well
    A Club that has produced great athletes of the past
    By all accounts young Billy can run quite fast

    The cream to the top rise as some like to say
    More honours are likely to come Billy’s way
    His athletic record thus far of his capabilities does not leave anyone in doubt
    And his is a good story for to read about

    As a young athlete to all he has made it quite clear
    That of more of him in the future we are bound for to hear
    He will win further honours in twenty fifteen
    For Cork in the red and Millstreet in the green.
