From the St. Peter's Parish Newsletter dated 24th October 1999:
Our congratulations and best wishes to Donald Maclsaac, Uist House, formerly East Kilbride, who celebrated his 103rd birthday last Tuesday. There was a special Mass for Donald followed by tea. Thankfully Donald still enjoys good physical health. It is quite a thought that Donald was born in 1896. At that time Father Allan MacDonald was the parish priest of Eriskay and Father George Rigg was parish priest of Daliburgh. The great fever that was to have such an effect on the Islands and which was to bring about the death of Father Rigg was to strike a year later in 1897. Donald has seen and experienced the harshness of poverty in these Islands at the end of last century and the beginning of this one. He has also seen the extraordinary changes, most for the better, that have come about since the last war. We wish Donald many more years of good health".
"Your prayers are also asked for the repose of the soul of Donald Maclsaac, Uist House, formerly East Kilbride, (Domhnall Aoghnais) who died early last Sunday morning. Donald reached the fine age of 103 years and 6 months. Despite his hard working life as a young man, he enjoyed good health until his latter years. May he rest in peace.
The funeral Mass for Donald took place on Monday in St. Peter's, Daliburgh.
To his family, relatives and friends we extend our sincere condolences." (Written by Canon John Angus Galbraith in April 2000)
