  1. Kathleen Kelleher lived in Rathcoole in Duhallow till she became the late Connie Kelleher’s wife
    And in Millstreet Town she raised her children and lived for most of her life
    She was not an aged person perhaps ten years with three score
    Sad to think that in Duhallow she will be seen never more

    The life journey that we are on for all of us comes to an end
    She will be missed in Lackabane and Millstreet Town where she had many a friend
    Where she was known and respected and where she had lived for years
    The funeral of Kathleen Kelleher would not have gone without tears

    One who never sought the social limelight she lived life in the quiet way
    That Kathleen was a nice and an easy going person of her only fair to say
    In her prime years quite attractive her hair was wavy and brown
    Doubtless then one of the finest in Duhallow’s Millstreet Town

    In St Mary’s by Cashman’s Hill where many of the dead of Millstreet lay
    The last remains of Kathleen Kelleher are in eternal rest today
    But mental images remain of her though the gift of life from her has gone
    And in the minds of all who knew her good memories of her will live on.
