  1. One of the nicest of people of old Millstreet Town
    To live as a compassionate and good person his claim to renown
    In his lifetime Pat Joe Kelleher made many a friend
    Good memories of him will not die at his life’s journey’s end

    Devoted to his son and daughter and to Kathleen his good wife
    Pat Joe Kelleher in time was granted a long life
    One who did so much good in his given time span
    And who lived his life as an honourable man

    He worked in Mary Cronin’s shop on Main Street Millstreet Town for many years
    And his passing from life would not have gone without tears
    Pat Joe always did have a great smile on his face
    His kind has helped to make Millstreet such a welcoming place

    In Duhallow Pat Joe was well liked and well known
    And in his lifetime of Many Seasons his friends in numbers had grown
    Truly a people’s person of him one can say
    About him he did have an endearing way

    His funeral for Millstreet was such a sad day
    By Cashman’s Hill in St Mary’s his last remains lay
    He did pass from life without having a foe
    The Human World is in need of far more like Pat Joe.

  2. I see that Pat Joe Kelleher who used to work in Mary Connie Cronin’s shop has died. He was as nice a man as you could meet especially to youngsters like me going into the shop. I seem to remember that he had a brother called John who was a fine athlete but maybe I’m wrong. Sincere condolences to his family from my sister Patricia and myself here in Lurgan Co. Armagh
