On Thursday 14th April, 2022 Donegal County Council reinstated the MacIntyre House Plaque at the Officers Mess Building, in the former Army Barracks, Lifford, in honor of the late Captain Kevin MacIntyre. 

 

Kevin’s family, friends and former colleagues – including Lt Col. Stephen Morgan, Officer Commanding 28th Infantry Battalion, and, Commandant Pat Early, retired former Battalion Commander of the 24th Infantry Battalion – were warmly welcomed by Elected Members and Officials of Donegal County Council, led by the Cathaoirleach of the Lifford/Stranorlar Municipal District Cllr. Gerry Crawford, who had initially proposed the motion to Council to formally recognize the naming of MacIntyre House.

 

On behalf of the MacIntyre family, Kevin’s daughter Anne Marie McNally unveiled the plaque and thanked everyone for attending this special event to remember their late father.

 

Speaking at the event, Cllr. Crawford said ‘Kevin MacIntyre was from a family with strong ties to Lifford and Donegal County Council, going back to his grandfather Andrew. Kevin was involved in many projects locally, including his efforts with others to help restore the roof of the Old Courthouse and his involvement in the setting up of Highland Radio. His employment with the P&T had a very positive influence to enable the Defense Forces to obtain this Campus’.

 

In closing the event, Cllr. Crawford thanked Eugene McCosker, a former council employee who played a major part in the Council’s acquisition of the Barracks, and those who helped with the event on the day, namely Olive Gillespie, Area Manager and Sharleen Tinney, Lifford Stranorlar MD, Council’s Building Facilities and Reprographic Staff. 

 

Refreshments and a display of old photographs were held afterwards in the Old Courthouse Lifford.
