  1. The old clock of time becomes everyone’s foe
    He left Carriglea many Seasons ago
    For to live in New York in the U S of A
    Though in Florida he lived his last night and day

    I knew Denis Singleton as a young man
    Near the prime of his life full of youthful elan
    But in Carriglea near Millstreet Town he did not stay
    The lust of adventure took him far away

    From the fields near old Clara where he spent his young years
    Where he grew to love Nature laughed and shed childhood tears
    And like many migrants he would have known of life’s many an up and down
    Far south of the countryside by Millstreet Town

    Many of his young friends in Duhallow he was never more for to meet
    Since his journeys in life took him far from Millstreet
    So many have left Duhallow never for to see again
    The Boggeraghs half cloaked in the gray fogs of rain

    Far from Carriglea in Florida in the U S of A
    Denis Singleton has lived his last night and day
    On all of our lives the clocks ticking away
    May he rest in peace where his last remains lay.

  2. “Some of you will recognize my family name as long standing Millstreet residents. I was born and raised in New York but spent many of my summers in Millstreet.
    Sadly my father, Dennis Singleton of Carriglea, passed away this February. I was hoping those of you who knew him could share a few stories from his days in Millstreet. It would mean a lot to us narrowbacks here in the states.
    Thank you in advance!”
