To: Clann na nGael,
We write to thank the club for its support over this past week.
It is difficult to find words which can express our gratitude for the manner in which the club came to our assistance both practically and emotionally during our hour of need.
For arranging the parking of cars, the catering for volunteers, the guard of honour, the hosting of the post funeral reception at the immaculately presented Johnstown, the slideshow, and particularly for the beautiful eulogy at the end of the funeral mass, we are eternally grateful.
We can only begin to imagine the work that went on behind the scenes. We also wish to acknowledge that all of this work was undertaken and completed whilst you too were grieving.
Donie loved Clann na nGael and everyone in it. He would have been humbled by the input of the club during this difficult time, yet proud, as are we.
We are forever in your debt,
The Shine family.
