After more than four decades behind the big chair, Keadue dentist, Dr. Paddy Ferry knows the drill better than most. Now his patients at Leith Walk Dental Practice in Edinburgh are bracing themselves for a big change in their lives as he retires following over forty-five successful years. Paddy studied dentistry at UCD in Dublin and following his graduation in December 1976 he worked for a year as a house surgeon in the Dublin Dental Hospital before moving to Edinburgh, where he joined the Leith Walk practice as an associate dentist in 1977. Not alone did he keep the connection with the Keadue band, he has also dedicated twenty-eight years in organising the selection of the Edinburgh Mary for the Mary from Dungloe International Festival. One of Paddy’s enduring memories in Leith will be standing outside his practice when Hibs came down Leith Walk with the Scottish Cup in 2016, for the first time in 114 years.
Since wearing more makeup I’ve noticed patches of dry skin emerging through my foundation. It’s common in winter months for people to experience extra dry, or flaky skin. Because my skin is very dry I’ve started using L’Occitane’s Ultra Rich Comforting Face Cream as it has 25% Shea Butter in it. Use a gentle cleanserDry skin tends to be sensitive skin, so in the winter months you might not be able to use your usual products. I’ve started changing my skincare routine to combat the harsh effect of winter on my poor skin, and I’ve already noticed a big difference.28 days ago Donegal News
A production company says it hopes to develop a full size film studio in west Donegal. AdvertisementSpeaking at a networking event in Letterkenny hosted by the Donegal Film Office, Ms Rafferty revealed how they are in talks with Údarás na Gaeltachta about plans for a fully functioning studio in Gaoth Dobhair. “We are going to build a virtual production film studio and hopefully we are going to have one big studio, 15,000sq ft with a virtual production hall and we have partners in the US who are helping us with that. Yet the Donegal Film Office is still only staffed on a part-time basis by Aideen Doherty and a small team of colleagues. We have plenty of creative people in this county but no large, proper height film studio.2 months ago Donegal News
A RAPHOE pharmacist says health services are dealing with the worst case of flu in 20 years and has warned the system is broken because of the Department’s failure to plan.

Caption: Luke Witherow (right) receiving his first senior international cap alongside Nick Page. Unfortunately the Ireland team tasted defeat in those outings, but it is still remarkable to see a Convoy native compete at that level. Witherow is clearly a driven man and his passion for hockey burns brightly. “My dad Alan was very involved with Raphoe Hockey Club when I was young and I would have travelled with him and his friends all over to watch them play. I’m only the second person from the county as far as I know to play the senior team after James Corry, who is a legend.3 months ago Donegal News
