Donegal’s most popular and probably most loved mother had a pre-birthday celebration along with all her family and many friends at her home in Kincasslagh yesterday.
Julia O’Donnell has lot to celebrate - a great family, recovery from her recent illness and, of course, her 94th birthday today.
Once again Donegal’s famous matriarch, who is renowned for her knitting, received a very special letter from Pope Francis on Friday last thanking her for the beautiful scarf and socks that she had recently sent him.
On behalf of all our readers we would like to wish this grand old lady a very happy birthday with all her family and continued good health and happiness.
