Donated by Aidan O'Hara
Information from Aidan O'Hara: 'Others present [i.e., apart from George 'Grainne' McLaughlin] included Aidan's bother-in-law, Johnny 'Neal' Doherty, Paddy Duffy who drove the ambulance for the Inishowen Hospital in the town, and barman, Micky McClure, who is now (2012) the owner of the pub. There was also a man called Colm, I think, or possibly Colin.
I didn't have to do a lot of prompting to get the material I recorded.'
