A large crowd attended the Donegal Association Annual Mass on Sunday, 10th of November in the Bonnington Hotel, Dublin.
Many friends of the association attended the mass and it was lovely to have the 2018 Donegal Person of the Year Jason Black present on the evening.
Jason brought up a candle in memory of Gay Byrne who was a long-standing friend of our association and attended many of our Gala Balls and read the citation at the first Donegal Person of the Year function.
Each year the association hold a mass to remember deceased family and friends of the Donegal Association. The mass was concelebrated by Fr. Maurice McGill and Fr. Michael McCullagh.
Family and friends of the deceased brought forward candles in their memory. After the mass those present were given an opportunity to catch up with family and friends. We thank those who came along and contributed to making our mass the special evening that it was.
