- This poem entitled "Millstreet" was composed by an American lady named Julia A. Sullivan.
Her parents lived in Coolinarney which is a townland about 4 miles NW of Millstreet.
They emigrated to America some years after the Famine.
Julia became an American school Teacher in, I believe, New York.
She visited the "Old Land" in 1910 and visited all the numerous friends of her parents.
After returning to America she published several pretty poems among which is "Millstreet."
She sent a few copies of her book to her friends in Millstreet Parish and one of them kindly lent Mrs Riordan the book so that the poem may be included in this selection.(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
