I,m also a Hatter. My mother was Bernadette (Bennie)Mc Laughlin, and i lived in Chapel Street, in the house at the entrance to the new church. I was about 3/4 while it was being built.AS far as i know, my granny was the original ower of the Carndonagh Motor Company. They ran a bus, called the Bluebird and my uncle Dan from Church Road was the driver. They had lorries as well, which my uncles, Charlie, Hugh and Joe drove. My uncle John was the Station Master at the Carn Branch of the Lough Swilly Railway at the foot of Malin Street. John , Dan and Joe built 2 bungalows and a house on Church road.
