Relatives have paid tribute to a 92-year-old war hero who died after crashing his motorcycle.
Donald Wallace broke his ribs in the accident and passed away a fortnight later.
His family say the Edinburgh-born grandfather, who took part in the Arctic Convys and the D-Day bombings, had a spirit of adventure all his life.
Daughter Fiona Tyson added: “You could never tell my dad what to do. He was very adventurous
man and always a very determined man."
The dedication and commitment of Elber Twomey and her strong Duhallow fundraising team has raised a staggering €127,000 for mental health charities and hospitals which offer a "home from home" experience when family members are so gravely ill.
She has shown a depth of forgiveness and kindness to so many despite having her entire family wiped out by a suicidal driver when the Twomeys were returning home from a holiday in the UK on July 6, 2012.
