  1. We extend sincere sympathy to Brendan & Family on the sad departure of Kathleen to her Eternal Reward, R.I.P.. Kathleen so enriched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing this true lady by her wonderful kindness, cheerfulness and true sincerity constantly supported in such an inspirational manner by her truly dedicated and exemplary husband, Brendan (who has also given so spontaneously of his time and skills to many voluntary groups including LTV2 Millstreet) and supported also by such a loving Family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

  2. Her name was Kathleen Murphy before she became Brendan Murphy’s wife
    And in Millstreet in Duhallow she spent most of her life
    A mother and grandmother though she was not old in years
    And among her friends and family her passing did give rise to tears

    I remember Kathleen Murphy when her hair was dark brown
    One of the finest women east of old Millstreet Town
    As the senior member of her family at Murphy family gatherings none to fill her place
    And from Millstreet in Duhallow hers will be a missed face

    Though it is a fact us humans are mortals and fact does never lie
    It is a sad day for a family the day a mother die
    She was a well loved person who did make many a friend
    And so sad to learn of Kathleen that her life’s journey did end

    Suppose it is the fear of death that most people do fear
    But every day we live to see to our last one more near
    The fate of Kathleen Murphy becomes the fate of everyone some day
    In St Mary’s near where she used to live her last remains now lay

    A beautiful looking woman when in her physical prime
    Good memories of Kathleen Murphy will outlive this simple rhyme
    Written in her honor hope from life hers was a painless release
    A good and gracious person may she now rest in peace.
