We'll start the week with an ending! This will be the last O'Dea shot for a little while as we have some other areas to explore. Porthall in Co. Donegal seems to have been a tiny wee station with many a tale to tell no doubt!
It's a Monday and some of us are not at our best after the weekend. Then I hear these klaxons sounding all over the Library - related to stories of death, stone throwing, wild cattle (death of), more death and smuggling!!! All of which seem to be common enough in this part of Donegal.
Thanks to John Spooner and Carol Maddock
for the stories. In future it would be appreciated if the Klaxons can be kept to a minimum especially on a Monday!!
