'I bear orders from the Captain'

I met Donncha again last week after almost 25 years - talking to him and retelling and rehearing the old stories prompted me to put these photographs online (they had been gathering dust in my loft and they deserved to be shared). I've always had a soft spot for Donncha - that twinkle is still in his eye and his energy is prodigious. Working for Donncha and John Skehan (Donncha's editor -as if anyone could have edited Donncha!)was my very first job at RTE. Over time I hope to fill out this blog with some of the old stories. I wonder if Donncha remembers Billy Flynn and Lady Londonderry (this was a series of dreadful talks about a Cork gillie which Skehan commissioned and which DOD sent up mercilessly)
