'Romantic' book launch in Buncrana 11.11.21

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 by.
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'.
