Jimmy misses out on Donegal trip because of visa problems

It's emerged that Jimmy from Senegal will not be visiting Donegal next week in the run up to next week's All Ireland Final.

The Lanzerote based singer, who features in the song 'Jimmy's Winning Matches' with Kilcar man Rory Gallagher was not able to secure a visa in time.

While everything was ready on the Irish side, when Jimmy flew to the Embassy of Senegal in Madrid last week, he was told he could not do the paperwork from there. He will have to return to Senegal to obtain the Visa required, which now means it will be next month at the earliest before he can secure a visa.

Rory Gallagher spoke to Highland Radio News this morning..........
