Donnie will be fondly remembered for his delicious oatcakes and his moonshine... he made oatcakes for me on a number of occasions, but he would never give me the recipe. And he always offered Simon a wee nip of shine when we visited (which was his excuse to have some too !) He was quite a character and he'll be missed.
