“I thought there were people who did the same thing that I did that Friday. They came in and they know what happened,” O’Donnell said.
“It’s unbelievable for a small community. I honestly don’t know how people will move forward. I don’t know. All I can say is Hamish, the little boy who spoke at his father’s funeral. I just saw the strength that he and his mother got up and did it.
O’Donnell added: [by Jesus]I was surprised at the time by the strength. I’ve seen wonderful words in the media saying ‘Donegal carries Creethrow and Ireland carries Donegal’. ”
