  1. Sorry to hear the death of Andrew Hickey this man was a legend in his day with his hearty laugh and his long black leather jacket great fun and never did hare to any one another giant legned gone from Millstreet

  2. Andrew Hickey lived in Millstreet Town perhaps all of his long life
    On Main Street he and Mary nee O Donoghue had a hardware store his devoted wife
    In Millstreet Town they raised their children where Andrew was well liked and well known
    And it can be said of him that he was one of Millstreet’s own

    It can be truly said of Andrew that he was a gentleman
    One who never harmed anybody in his very long life span
    He will be missed by friends and family where his was a well loved face
    Millstreet for him living in it surely was a better place

    Andrew Hickey in his lifetime was one who never made a foe
    One of the nicest and kindest of people of the Millstreet of long ago
    Sad to think he will not be seen in Millstreet Town in the flesh again
    But good memories of the person he was in all who knew him will remain

    Never to be seen in the flesh again on the streets of Millstreet Town
    One who lived by good example and in deeds or words never put anyone down
    Such a good and decent person though his gift of life from him has gone
    In the minds of all who knew him good memories of him will live on

    Gone from the Town of Millstreet where he first saw light of day
    But it can be said of Andrew Hickey that he was a good person in every way
    His heart that beat with kindness by Life’s Reaper rendered still
    Is now at rest forever in the quiet by Cashman’s Hill.
