Hi everyone Willie John O' Donnell here, youngest son of Jean Kearney RIP ( Ned's daughter) who was maried to Willie John O'Donnell RIP (Toome). In brief I maried Betty Walsh, a local 22 years ago (she thinks it seems just like yesterday, but I remember every day of it vividly). We have 3 children Roisin who is currently studying music at Magee University in Derry, Sean who will be sitting his A levels next year and Ruairi who will be sitting his GCSEs next year. I myself am a Funeral Director with Funeral Homes in Portglenone, Toome and a new one opening in Kenbaan, Broughshane Road, Ballymena in September 2008 (due to my recent take over of Neal J Doherty's Funeral Directors business in Balymena). Its a good time to be in this business (ie..recession proof) due to these current uncertain times we are all experiencing at present. I will endeavour to meet and greet everyone at the reunon and make sure my business cards and contact details are well distributed. (just joking). I congratulate everyone involved in the organising of the reunion and this superb site, and I realy do hope the weather will be favourable towards us. I Look forward to meeting everyone  over the forthcoming weekend. P.S. For anyone who does not know me I am  6ft 4ins tall, jet black hair, blue eyes, well tanned, usually wearing a dark suit and always carrying a little black notebok in my hand.  Good Luck

This poem was written by my father in 1927 when he was 29 years old. It was committed to memory and recited on occasion but had never been written down. One summer evening in August 1977 my father dictated it to my daughter, Una, and as a result I am able to share it with you today.

My father was often called upon to recite at weddings and other occasions. He revelled in providing such simple entertainments.

The Huncheon Motor Car

by Patrick Kearney

All of you who want a sweetheart,

Come be advised by me.

Just go along with the Huncheon Boys,

And you’ll get two or three.

They are a crowd of jolly boys,

And they travel near and far.

They get home at regular hours,

In the Huncheon Motor car

Charlie McGee he is the driver,

And a conceited boy is he.

For he can drive with one of his hands,

And a girl upon his knee

He has a provincial licence,

The police for to mar.

And he gives the boys a lively ride

In the Huncheon motor car.

Pat Kearney is the captain,

Of this famous motor bus.

And when he gives the order,

There is a bit of a fuss.

He is a very civil chap,

And is known here and far,

But he keeps good regulation,

In the Huncheon motor car.

They have a skilled mechanic,

And he is one of their own.

His name is Davy Dawson,

And he comes from Portglenone.

He keeps this vehicle in good trim,

For the journeys near and far.

And he swears there’s nothing on the road,

Could pass the Huncheon motor car.

This car was started for to run,

In nineteen twenty seven.

And if you got to sail in it,

You’d swear you were for heaven.

When Dawson gets up to his feet,

And shouts “pass us if you dare”.

And us travelling at 50 miles per hour,

In the Huncheon motor car.

Now there is a bus up in Cloughmills,

And they call it the Northern Star.

And they’re going to put it upon the road.

And scrap the motor car.
