Creeslough: Those who searched the rubble of the blast in Donegal were not just neighbors but desperate friends

There are no words that can express the sheer horror at what happened in Creeslough, north west Donegal, who was heart and soul ripped out yesterday.

It is a spectacular site, more of a small village than a town where modern small businesses have sprung up over the years, nestled in the beautiful moorland landscape of cattle and heather, framed by the flat white-tipped silhouette of Muckish in winter. It never lost the sense of community. For years our childhood holidays took us there and to the surrounding areas of Dunfanaghy and Downings, paddling in the icy waters of Sheephaven Bay and then drinking football specials at a local pub. Simple but beautiful vacations in ordinary towns with wonderfully friendly people. Donegal has an ease where time is relaxed and people are at ease with neighbors and visitors alike. Perhaps it is because there are many small communities that have experienced the brunt of emigration to Scotland in job-poor places that these have left cemented bonds of friendship and care for one another as if they were their own.
