It is with great sadness that I note the recent passing of the truly great Jim McNamara, Donore Harriers. There is much about him on the web which is easily found via your favoured search engine but I will reference an article by Frank McNally, here.

I also recall him being in Ballybofey in 2009 at the National Hal
