Name: Angela Dillon
Daughter of Harry. Just wanted to say how much I, and all my family,enjoyed the whole experience of last weekend. I was sorry to see it end, but knew that I had partied more than my body could cope with!Thanks again to all the committee for a varied enjoyable programme of events-especially the Mass, which was very meaningful.

Also I would like to record on behalf of all the Mount Gawn family how touched we were by the respect, courtesy and warmth shown to our Mum throughout the weekend by all the Clan. Her pride in being regarded as The Matriarch, and the attention shown to her all weekend has been like a tonic to her. The beautiful flowers presented to her on Sunday night have pride of place in our home. By the way, she was almost last to leave Leighinmohr on Sunday night-hope we are all feeling like that at 91+ years!!

Name: Clare Etherson(Margaret)
Thrilled to have one the award for the 'Best Networker' at the Re-Union.  So sorry I wasn't there to collect it as we were 'On the Rocky Road to Dublin'!!! As you can see I didn't enjoy the weekend at all. Ha Ha. Well done to a fabulous hard working committee and all who helped out.  What a successfull weekend.  Granny Etherson would have been in her element if she was there.  She was a wonderful woman.  John often referred to her as "The Wee Woman".  She was a 'Wee' woman with a Big Heart and we all have very fond memories of her.  We all miss her baking, those lovely Soda Scones and the gathering in Killigullib on Sundays.  Here's to the next re-union.  
Name: Pauline McMullan (Agnes)
A big thank you to Martin, Sean and all the Committee (especially Uncle Harry) for all their hard work in making last weekend a great success.

I notice the Huncheon Motor Car poem on the website, it brought back fond memories of Margaret Etherson, (sister of my Granny Agnes), reciting it at my mum & dad's 25 wedding anniversay (which was 16 years ago) Margaret was almost 80 then and she recited it word perfect, I saw the video of this a few months ago and it was a lovely moment.

Thanks also to Damain O'Kane for his patience in taking people up and down the Bann all evening, my cousins and I had a lovely trip, never got to buy you that drink i promised you!

We (the whole McMullan family) had a wonderful weekend and my brother Declan and his wife Bridgeen are delighted to be the proud owners of the painting of Lisnagarran.

Thanks again to all those concerned.
Name: Emma Ramage
Granddaughter of Georgie and Harry and daughter of Maureen and Denis.  I am living in Edinburgh with my husband Andrew.  We are sorry we missed this big bash as we are well aware all Kearneys love a good party and a yak!  Well done on a fab website.  My husband nearly keeled over when he saw that the Kearneys made up 13% of the NI phonebook!

I am currently studying Chinese in University College Cork and will be going to Shanghai University for a year to study, two weeks from now. so if anyone finds themselves in China in the next year, look me up!

Sounds like the reunion was a big success, and I am very sorry to have missed it! (So is Ian Hamilton!) Hopefully I will make the next one in 50 years time!

Thanks to all involved in the organising of the reunion, we all enjoyed meeting everyone. Special thanks to Damian OKane for all the babysitting on his boat during the bbq...

Name: Jennifer Mullan (Mick)
Many thanks and congratulations to Martin, Sean and the hardworking committee for the most enjoyable weekend. Like a few others I was a little apprehensive about meeting up with this big clan but from Friday night I did not want to miss any other part of it.  My mum Mary will vouch for that as on Sunday evening she had to make her own way home as she wasnt sure what time she would get me out of Leighinmohr.  As well as meeting many of my dads first cousins I had the opportunity of meeting up with my own first cousins some of whom I had not met before and had travelled quite some distance.  
My only regret is that my dad Fran was not present - I know he would have enjoyed it thoroughly.

The Scattering Song
The Kearney Clan Came over the hill
Down the Bann Valley so ShadyThey whistled and Sang til the green woods rang
And the sun came up in the dawning
Ady do da de do da de,
ady do da de  dea a a ---
they whistled and sang til the green woods rang ,
For we are proud to be Kearney
And when we came to the chapel door,
on saturday morning quite early
We looked inside and assembled there ,
Five hundred Kearneys and counting
For Little did James and Sara Think,
We,ve spread to lands all over,
And we'll be glad til our dying day,
to stand here shoulder to shoulder,
So as we depart this reunion today,
Let us all rememder,
that we all have had a wonder ful time,
Never to be forgotten
(air of the gypsey rover)
