  1. Those who knew Tim Joe Dennehy do fondly recall
    That as a young man for Millstreet he played Gaelic Football
    It is so sad to learn that the farewell bell has tolled
    For the once dashing forward of the green and gold

    In Murphy’s Terrace in Millstreet he grew into a man
    But his life journey ended many kilometers from where it began
    In Knockraha where he lived with his family and wife
    The amiable Tim Joe lived out his life

    In his late sixties when he passed away
    But on how long we live we do not have a say
    A painful terminal illness on his once strong and healthy body told
    Suppose he was one not meant to live to die old

    On long gone Summer Sundays when Nature was in bloom
    In the football parks of Coachford and Macroom
    For the dashing forward Tim Joe Dennehy the cheering was loud
    Always a favorite of the Millstreet fans in the crowd

    An amiable person well liked and well known
    One can say of Tim Joe he was in a class of his own
    His suffering behind him and in truth one can say
    For all of us there will be a last night and day.
