  1. I knew her as Mary Twohig before she became Donal McCarthy’s wife
    And so sad for to learn that she has lost her gift of life
    She went to live in Kilcummin near Killarney many miles from Annagloor near Millstreet
    And her i was never again for to meet

    A grandmother she died in her early to mid sixties which does not seem old
    In her young years with dark hair one lovely to behold
    A down to earth person untainted by guile
    She always did have such a beautiful smile

    Good memories of the past are all that one does have to retain
    Her great loss to Annagloor became Kilcummin’s gain
    She was in her prime some four decades ago
    But time that rusts iron becomes everyone’s foe

    A beautiful person i had not seen for years
    Her passing from life would not have gone without tears
    Her family and friends left to grieve for her loss
    In life as is said there is many a cross

    The great gift of life from her may have gone
    But in all who knew Mary good memories of her will live on
    She lived as a good person kind in her own way
    The Human World in need of many more like her in truth one can say

    The cold wind of January in Millstreet blow down from Cashman’s Hill
    Above St Mary’s Cemetery where the heart of Mary McCarthy is forever still
    And though in the flesh never for to be seen again
    In all who knew her good memories of her will remain.
