Author : Carlow Auxiliary to the British Society for Promoting the Religious Principles of the Reformation. He had been a Curate’s Assistant in Carnew earlier than this.
Rev H Kearney, Vicar of Kilgobbin, died 1855, aged 71.
He is mentioned affectionately in Recollections of the late J G Bellett. Excerpted from Stem Publishing,
""In 1817 Mr. Kearney was appointed to the living of Kilgobbin" (the parish in which, 'North Lodge' was situated), "one of the most remarkable men I ever knew — remarkable for the saintliness of his character and the amount of heavenly wisdom with which he was endued. He was thoroughly unworldly — not a tinge of the world seemed to soil him, nor a desire for the honour which cometh from men to affect him. Mrs. Kearney was one almost as remarkable as himself, though not in the same way, of a very warm and affectionate nature, full of zeal for the honour of Christ and of loving interest in the souls for whom He died. Two persons of such excellence, the one glowing with the fervour of charity, the other endued with the wisdom which is from above, pure, peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, to a greater degree than I ever witnessed in anyone, could not but have their influence on others, and through the grace and goodness of God, that influence was felt in our family."
The words of my dear father, to which I have referred, were said to me one day when he took me to see the old home. We were in the garden at, "North Lodge"; and he told me to look up at one particular window, and said that one day while studying in that room the words came into his mind — "What will be the end of it all?" This thought kept repeating itself; and that, he believed, was the beginning of new life to his soul.
My grandfather was at first much displeased by the seriousness produced, or deepened, in all his children by Mr. Kearney's teaching. His displeasure was patiently borne, while the truths they had received were unflinchingly held. Nor was this without its reward in later years, for after his father's death, my uncle wrote as follows:
One of our pleasantest days each summer was when my father would drive out with my brother, my mother's two nieces and myself, to spend the day at Ballycorus (near "North Lodge"), the Dargle, and Powerscourt Waterfall, first going to breakfast with Mr. Kearney at Kilternan Glebe.
Mr. Kearney's love for my father was very strong; and their friendship was not the least shaken by my father's separation from the Church of England.
Visits to Kilternan Glebe were continued up to the time of Mr. Kearney's death; and on the last day of his life my father watched beside him for hours, and saw him breathe his last (1852).
I do not know exactly at what time Aunt Alice's mind first became anxious about the things of God; but Mr. Kearney's influence and preaching were helpful to her as well as to others. She told me that once in those early days at North Lodge she was much troubled because of some heavy responsibility that weighed upon her for a time, and in despair she knelt down and said, "Oh, what shall I say to be heard"! And then she seemed to hear a voice repeating these words from the Te Deum, "Lord, help Thy servant, whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy precious blood." She was comforted; and very soon after by some means the great trouble was removed. This was, perhaps, the beginning of her delight and earnest continuance in prayer. It is beautiful to remember. what it was to her. When from increasing age other occupations dropped off, prayer continued with more or less energy to the end."
Rev’d Edward Newenham Hoare (1800-1877); a tablet erected in Waterford Cathedral in his memory.
Dean of Achonry and Chaplain to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. That’s what he was in 1841 when he wrote The Tendency of the Principles Advocated in the Tracts for the Times Considered, 5 Lectures to a Candidate for Holy Orders London, /L&J Seeley 1841. He edited the (Dublin) Christian Herald, which dealt with prophetic subjects. He was editor from 1830-1834. He published some notices of the Powerscourt conferences. He also wrote on the education question, and became an outright supporter of the government’s National Schools –something which must have disappointed JND and those who deplored the downgrading of support for overtly Protestant Bible-based education.
