Dear All,

The passing of Hazel Lucy leaves me without words, except to say that I am wistful, sad, but happy to have known her, and so many who have crossed Rainbow Bridge. Hazel Lucy, please give my Cousins Blackie and Pat some good craic and lots of love from me.

The song on this page, the parting glass, is dedicated to all of you...it's from one of Mommy's favorite movies, 'Waking Ned Devine' and is an old irish song. The lyrics are below.

Purrs to all, and maybe some chicken...no, maybe I'll keep the chicken.

The Parting Glass
Trad. Irish song
From "Waking Ned Devine" soundtrack
arr. by Shaun Davey, sung by Liam O'Maunlai.
All the money that e'er I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm I've ever done
Alas,It was to none but me
And all I've done for want of wit
To memory now,I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Goodnight and joy be to you all!

Fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Goodnight and joy be to you all!

Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay.
Since it fell into my lot
that I should rise,and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Goodnight and joy be to you all!

But since it fell into my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Goodnight and joy be to you all!

So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Goodnight and joy be to you all!
