Crash boy's parents pay tribute to 'wee madman'

By Amanda Ferguson

The heartbroken parents of a boy killed in a traffic collision in north Belfast have paid a moving tribute to their "wee madman".

Conor O'Neill (5) died on Wednesday when he was hit by a car while on his bicycle in Rosehead.

The Holy Cross Boys' Primary School pupil will be buried today at Carnmoney cemetery after a Mass of the Angels at Holy Cross Church, Ardoyne.

An emotional family notice said "Conor Bo" was the family's "wee star now" and he would "never be forgotten".

"How are we going to cope without our wee madman?" the heart-rending statement read.

"Words can't describe how much we are going to miss you. Your smile and personality brightened up everyone's day. Your generosity for such a young wee man touched all our hearts.

"You're our wee star now and not a second will go by when you won't be in our hearts.

"We hope and pray you are resting peacefully and one day we will all be reunited again.

"We all love you so much and our hearts are broken thinking how we are going to cope without our wee Conor Bo."

The message is from father Kevin, mother Ciara, "best mate" brother Kevin and "your wee princess", sister Cara Rose.
