A Unique family gathering took place in Buncrana last week when members of the Doherty clan returned from across the globe.

The reunion, which took place at the Lake of Shadows Hotel on Friday, August 1, saw hundreds of members of the  “Hugh Joe” branch of the “Conlenan” Dohertys gather from as far away as Canada and the US.

Buncrana man Neil Doherty, who has been researching his family tree for many years, said it was the fourth time their particularly large family had got together, following an emotional reunion in 1996.
