The Sheephaven Mummers held their “annual mummers dance presentation” in McNulty’s Bar, Creeslough, with proceeds going towards the Donegal Hospice and the Oncology ward.
The community had a special appreciation award for King Mummer Desmond Stewart (Woodhill, Dunfanaghy), who, for over twenty years has taken in over €200,000 for the Hospice and Oncology ward in Letterkenny.
Desmond was presented with a painting of his homeland of Horn Head by Annmarie Ward (Donegal Person of the year, 2011).
Desmond and his mummer friends are known throughout the county for visiting many pubs and venues from November right through to New Years.
On some occasions, when wanting to round up an even figure, Desmond would contribute fifty, or one hundred euro out of his own pocket.
The community of Creeslough and Dunfanaghy would like to thank Desmond for all the time he gives to these mummering events and we wish him many more years of good work.
