Memories of Ballyshannon - old photos to get you talking . . .
In today’s Donegal Democrat we have put together a collection of photographs taken by the late Willie John Duffy who died two years ago this November.

In today’s Donegal Democrat we have put together a collection of photographs taken by the late Willie John Duffy who died two years ago this November.

The photos are mainly from the 1970’s and a few from earlier times and we think people in the Ballyshannon area in particular will enjoy them, but they have a wider appeal as many of those featured are well known.

There’s one great photo of the famous world boxing champion Floyd Patterson when he visited the area on holidays.

The Duffy family gave the photos to us in memory of their late father, who was a former employee of the paper and we thank them for their generosity.

Let us know if you see the paper and can help us as many of the captions are incomplete and we are hoping readers will help us. If you have information, please e-mail our editor at michael.daly@donegaldemocrat.com
