Jamie Celebration: On April 11th Ballybay Chamber of Commerce held a celebration and presentation to the Ballybay College football team to recognise their All-Ireland victory and also to Jamie Hughes who won a Gold Medal in Swimmimg in the Special Olympics. Now I know I’m a bit late with this but I feel many in this area will know who Jamie Hughes is. The late Fr. Billy Hughes RIP was our beloved priest for many years here in Donagh. We was well liked and was very active in the community until his health began to cause problems. However many will remember his mother, who came to live with him and many will recall his nephew Jamie spending hours and days with Fr. Billy. He took Jamie everywhere and they played golf too as well as fishing. Jamie was a wonderful young man who could comunicate well and had many interests. He was the son of the late Seamus, Fr. Billy’s brother, and his wife Rose. Jamie was very committed to his sport and when he won Gold at the Special Olympics it was really no surprise. Fr. Billy and his dad would have been so proud of him. However the people of Ballybay were proud of him and that is why he was honoured at a public reception in the town on April 11th. Rory McAtavie was Master of Ceremonies, Malachy O’Rourke was a speaker, Cllr. Sean Gilliland made a presentation to Jamie, Agnes McGuinness, on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce made a presentation to him and presentations were made to the Ballybay team. Jamie responded and thanked everyone for their words of congratulations and for the presentations. It was a beautiful occasion and well deserved by both recipients. Well done to the team and to Jamie and well done to the organisers.
