Last Patricks Day, everyone else went to the parade dressed in green. Not us. We are Cartys We are from Longford. We are just a little bit different… we dressed in black. and went to a funeral! R.I.P. Tiernan!
We meet at funerals, and weddings, well others do.
Us, we meet at funerals, that’s what we do.
Promise to call by each other, rarely do.
But we say it anyway, its the thing to do.
“You’d love to meet them, you look alike, you do”
We be told, we mean to, we really do.
We meet at the next funeral, we look alike, we do.
Pity we cannot speak, we mourn, as its their funeral, you do.
