Kinncasslagh native is new owner of the Viking House Hotel

The Viking House premises, a hotel which was formerly owned by superstar Daniel O'Donnell, has changed hands and is now under the stewardship of a new owner Colm Bonner, a native of Kincasslagh.

A member of a well known local family, the community of Kinncasslagh and surrounding areas wish Colm well with this new venture. The community would also like to pay tribute to the former owner, Pauline Carey, who ran this premises to a very high standard for almost almost two decades. She always had a warm welcome for all callers to the premises.
