Donegal Supporters Listen to "Jimmy's Winning Matches"

There were about 300 to 400 Donegal supporters on the Diamond on Sunday afternoon to hear Rory Gallgher play "Jimmy’s Winning Matches". The real Jimmy couldn't make it to Ireland from Lanzarote as the Irish Embassy or Consulate couldn't get him a visa in time, but Frank stood in for him!

This was a TG4 programme in association with the Four Masters.
