Clansman Duncan Macnab meets Desmond Tutu

| November 20, 2011 | 0 Comments

“The Chief received a Christmas card from Alastair Macnab of Barrachastalain in which were enclosed this photograph of his son Duncan who works in local government in Ireland, and what Alastair describes as a ‘nice story for Christmas’!


Archibishop Desmond Tutu’s children’s charity gave the council a large sum of money to refurbish an Irish children’s home. Three years later Des decides to visit the home and the council realises it ain’t done nothing about it, and Des is coming in two days time. Clerk of Works Duncan (son) gets a panic call from the Boss, gets everyone organised and totally does the business. Des and the Council were impressed! So was I!!”

“Note Alastair Macnab of Barrachastalain is a former RAF and airline pilot.
At one time he was with East African Airways in Kenya, as was the Chief’s brother the late Francis Macnabb, who died in an air crash in Addis Ababa in 1972.”
