There was a double cause for celebration in the Bonner household in Madavagh, Lettermacaward this week.
Fresh from Donegal’s big win over Tyrone in Saturday’s Ulster semi-final, the Donegal manager Declan Bonner was in Galway on Tuesday as his daughter, Amara, graduated as a doctor from NUI Galway.
After six years of study at NUI Galway’s School of Medicine, Amara graduated with degrees of Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of Obstetrics (M.B., B.Ch., B.A.O).
Next month, she starts her first job in University Hospital Galway.
Amara, a former student at St Columba’s Comprehensive in Glenties, is pictured with her proud parents, Catherine and Declan.
