The 2013 O’Donnell Clan Gathering last week brought O’Donnells and friends from nine different countries to Donegal to unite with their roots. Annette O’Donnell reports.
A very successful week was had, especially as the sun shone throughout. Old acquaintances were renewed and new friendships made – the main purpose of our Clan Gatherings.
The visitors said they loved Donegal and intend to return with other family members. They remarked on the happy people they met in spite of all the recession and hard times.
Our history, culture and music is what we need to promote and much of that is available in our county, along with the sound of silence – something we take for granted.
See this Thursday’s Donegal Democrat for photos from the busy week.
