The Donegal Association Dublin held their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, 19th of October in the Regency Hotel, Drumcondra.

The past was another fantastic year when Deirdre McGlone was inaugurated as Donegal Person of the Year. Hundreds attended our Annual Gala Ball to witness this special event in the Donegal Association’s annual dinner.

The committee are delighted to welcome new members to the committee including Ailbhe McMonagle, Majella Ellis, Sorcha Ní Ghallchóir and Mary Ellen Murray.

Siobhan Shovlin of the Association said, “We are confident our new members will bring many fresh ideas to the table and enable the association to strengthen and grow in the year ahead and into the future.

“The search is on for the next Donegal Person of the Year with the closing date for receipt of nominations is 30th of November 2016.

Any individual or any group may nominate a person –the main criteria being that the person nominated should have made a significant contribution to the promotion of the county at local, national, or international level. Nominations should set out the reasons for the nomination. Nomination forms may be downloaded from the Association’s website www.donegalassociation.ie
