Thanks to all who took part in the virtual Donegal Congress over the weekend of 6-8 November. While regular Donegal attendees will acknowledge that perhaps the hospitality wasn’t quite the same this year, it was the best we could do in the current circumstances. Well done to our organising team of Mairead Basquille, Diarmuid Reddan, Huey Daly, and Fearghal O’Boyle, and to entry-manager Jim O’Sullivan, and here’s hoping we will be back at the table/bar/dancefloor (delete as appropriate!) in the Abbey and Central Hotels this time next year.

  • Friday Mixed Pairs – Mary (BH) Doherty & Denis Ellis
