Aubane Social Club: “We extend our greatest sympathy to the families, relatives and friends of the following who died recently: Margaret Boyle (nee Golden) formerly of Tullig and New York”


In my boyhood days in Millstreet she was one I used to know
I last met her in New York some four decades ago
From Tullig Hill near Millstreet Town and sad am I to say
That I read of the news of her passing on the internet today.

The lovely Margaret Golden unaffected by conceit
One of many nice people to migrate from Millstreet
She went to live in New York in the U S of A
And far from her old Hometown her last remains now lay.
