Molscéal: An Dochtúir Dómhnall Ó Loingsigh (https://molsceal.ie/siamsaiocht/alt/?CID=6292703214001). “Ba é an dochtúir sciath chosanta na Gaeilge ina bhaile dúchais agus de thoradh a shaothair bhuaigh sé an teideal ‘Príomhchathair na Gaeltachta’ do Bhaile Bhuirne" - sin atá scríofa ar leacht an Dochtúir Dómhnall Ó Loingsigh i Reilig Ghobnatan i mBaile Bhuirne. Ba dhuine mór fiontair agus gnó é chomh maith agus tá an scéal ar fad ag Katie Ní Loingsigh dúinn.
