  1. When Last i met Colette Hickey she was with her sister Clare
    At the Normandy Hotel in Clifton Hill they were free of any care
    Their spirit of adventure had brought them far south of Millstreet Town
    To the City where old Yarra ever flows in cloak of brown

    They did seem very happy for to meet a fellow from Millstreet
    But sadly i remember them i never more did meet
    Our journeys in life did take us to places elsewhere
    It is a very big World the big World out there

    A long way south of Duhallow even by air
    For Clare and Colette of the ginger curly hair
    But going back the years this now seems long ago
    And time as we know becomes everyone’s foe

    In two decades and seven years many of the babies back then
    Are nowadays the parents of the future young women and men
    And memories are all we have left of the what used to be
    Of people we knew never more for to see

    Meeting Clare and her younger sister Colette a memory for me to enjoy
    I see on her death notice that she lived and died in Fermoy
    From Millstreet Town not a long journey by car
    Far nearer to there than the Normandy Hotel Bar

    By Cashman’s Hill in St Mary’s her last remains lay
    And in her passing she is grieved by her family and friends today
    From life’s cares for all of us a final release
    The beautiful Colette may she now rest in peace.
