About Heaney Motor Co
Tom Heaney first got into the motor trade at the age of 14, he started his apprenticeship in Swatragh Northern Ireland, before moving to England where he completed his apprenticeship & run a successful service department in a Birmingham based main dealership, he also had the experience of working on many of the cars we restore today giving him an immense knowledge base. He returned to Northern Ireland in 1970 and worked as workshop foreman for Darragh & Maine in Cookstown until opening our business in 1973.
Tom was joined by his son Tommy in 1983 who at 16yrs old went on to complete his apprenticeship and City & Guilds in motor mechanics. Heaney Motor Company started life as a general repair and body shop working on regular everyday cars, but in the early 90s, seeing a change in the car market, we made the decision to move into the restoration business.
