Always looking to laugh, joke and see the best in things, no matter how dark or dreary the situation. A big kid at heart, the fatherly figure that never stopped breathing, eating and sleeping Sarah and Carolyn. George was a good man, a hard worker and one of the best people to have on the road, both on and off the stage. I’m sure you’re playing music with the angels now George, I am going to miss you man. This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to write. RIP George Donaldson. Keith x Keith Harkin

Today I lost a colleague, a Celtic Thunder original brother, but, more importantly, I lost my very good friend. From the first day I met him at the audition for Celtic Thunder in 2007, we became “thick as thieves” and shared so many great times together – on and off the stage. I know he’s looking down now on the two most important people in his life – Carolyn and Sarah – and on the rest of us holding them up for him, with his guitar strapped around his neck and a pint in his hand with that big smile of his. George, I miss you so much already.

As he always sang Phil’s words, in his own inimitable way: “though he may be gone, memories linger on, and I’ll miss him… My Old “Bro”…. Rest in peace Big Man. Those of us in what you deemed “Celtic Thunderland” will miss you more than you’ll ever know….Ryan xx  Ryan Kelly
