Isaac Butt was born in Glenfinn (beside the GAA Pitch) in 1813. A son of a Church of Ireland Rector he was also a descendent of the O'Donnells of Tyrconnell. He was educated at the Royal, Raphoe and Midleton, Cork before going to the world famous Trinity College, Dublin aged 15 years old (where he co-founded The Dublin University Magazine).

As well as becoming a Professor and lecturer of political economy, Isaac Butt quickly established himself as a brilliant Barrister.

      Back again for a visit. I've been back in New York City for three years now and miss the pastoral beauty of the Northwest of Ireland.

      Hi Sligobay. Thanks very much for the nice comment. Sligo too is a fantastic part of the world. Any visitors to Donegal I would recommend you take the breathtaking drive through Bundoran along the coastline and on out past Benbulben (Make sure you take a camera!). Carry on for another 10 minutes on this road will take you into Sligo town centre.

      Welcome to Hub Pages. I lived in Sligo for four years and spent a lot of time in Donegal. I have been to Glennfinn and agree with your recommendation.
