The man who inspired the lyrics for the famous Donegal anthem “Jimmy’s winning matches” met up with his hero Colm McFadden in The Island Bar in Lanzarotte on Friday night last.

Jimmy was the inspiration behind Kilcar man Rory Gallagher’s song but unfortunately could not make it to Donegal for the homecoming celebrations but he was delighted to meet up with Colm on Friday night.

The Island Bar has become one of the most popular bars on the island not only with Donegal/Irish people but with tourists from every corner of the globe who enjoy the great music and the warm Donegal welcome. (Photograph; Courtesy of Rory Gallagher)
