The man who saved baby Rioghnach-Ann from the Lough Swilly two weeks ago, says he looks forward to seeing her grow up and being a part of her life.
Posting on his own facebook page, hero Davitt Walsh described Louise James as an exceptional woman, an inspiration and a great comfort.
“While reflecting today on all that has happened, I would like to say that I am overwhelmed by all the messages and posts that I have received,” she said.
“It’s impossible for me to reply to everyone individually but I have read them all. It’s your kindness and sincerity that has given me great strength and enabled me to cope over these last days.
“So I would like to thank you all so much for this! Louise has been an inspiration to me and a great comfort, she is an exceptional woman. Rioghnach-Ann is a beautiful baby and I look forward to being a part of her life and to see her growing up. Sean, Mark, Evan, Ruth and Jodie-Lee are now together in heaven. God Bless R.I.P”
