SEAMUS Browne, of Browne
Printers in Letterkenny, has decided to re-publish and
print a book, free of charge, to commemorate 50 years in
the printing business. The book is called 'Romantic
Stories and Legends of Donegal' by Harry Percival Swan.
The author lived at Ardeelan House, Buncrana and passed
away in 1970.
Seamus said: "When I took over the printing business of
Barr & Son Printers in 1990, I also acquired copyright
rights of all publications. The book is a collection of
poems, folklore and stories about Donegal from days gone
All proceeds raised from the sale of the book will be
donated to Pieta House, a charity very close to many
people’s hearts, including my own."
Seamus Browne holds up a
copy of 'Romantic Stories and Legends of Donegal'.
The official launch of the
book is on Friday, 19th November in the Inishowen
Gateway Hotel, Buncrana at 7pm.
Dr. Sean Beattie will be the MC for the night. Guest
speaker Emma Murphy from Pieta House will talk about the
work of the charity and music on the night will be
performed by Roisin McGrory and Joleen McLaughlin. The
book will be officially launched by Noel Cunningham, TV
personality and currently 'Donegal Person of the Year'.
