  1. In her prime years among Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra beauties she was one to the fore
    Joan Twomey of Rathduane between Millstreet and Rathmore
    As Mrs McSweeney in Killarney she raised her family
    But to live to a very old age for her was not meant to be
    Perhaps in her early to mid sixties nowadays this is not old
    I remember her as dark brown haired, young and lovely to behold
    One of those nice people who was free of conceit
    Friendly in her ways and a pleasure to meet
    She surely was a credit to her mum and her dad
    And to learn of her passing from life is to say the least sad
    Rathduane’s loss in her became Killarney’s gain
    And in her family, relatives and friends good memories of her will remain
    In St Mary’s cemetery in Millstreet her last remains lay
    From her first home in Rathduane in kilometers not far away.
