  1. He and his late wife Marion owned McCarthy’s Bar in Millstreet Town Square for many years
    And among family and friends his passing from life would not have gone without tears
    Teddy O’ Callaghan was a quiet man and kind in his own way
    Quiet waters are deep as the wise are known to say

    It can be said of Teddy that he was one of Millstreet’s own
    As the man of the pub in the Town Square he became widely known
    In Millstreet as in everywhere else the changes keep happening fast
    And all we have left are memories of the past

    To the scythe of life’s Reaper we eventually must fall
    The last day and night is ahead of us all
    Teddy perhaps in his eighties of time lived a good span
    Near Millstreet Town he was born and grew into a man

    To the higher self he did live as quite true
    And he was a good person for to give him his due
    His mum and his dad in him raised a good son
    In his long life in Millstreet he never harmed anyone

    Where many of the deceased of the Parish do lay
    In the cemetery at St Mary’s he is at peace today
    A link to the Millstreet of the long ago
    So sad to learn of the passing of Teddy Connie Joe.

    Tom and Trudi
