A grand old lady with connections to presidents, past and present, celebrated her 100th birthday with her family and many friends in the Community Hospital in Killybegs on Wednesday week last.

Not only did Brid Butler from Glencolmcille receive a personal letter from President Michael D O’Huiginn but she also enjoyed a close connection with Ireland’s first president, Dubhghlas de hÍde.
