first_imgONE of Donegal’s greatest is set to be honoured in New Zealand.The late Hugh Green will be given a posthumous Hall of Fame award by the business community in his adopted homeland.Hugh, from Raphoe, passed away last year. His son John and daughter Frances have spoken about his love for life, doing deals – and his native county.Frances says he never learnt to use a computer, calling it “the magic box”. “He couldn’t really read and write that well, and he certainly couldn’t spell.”He was hard on his children, but “you saw a different side of him when he went to Ireland”, Frances says.He had married Aucklander Moira Buckley in 1955 but was achingly homesick for years, only settling when he could afford to make regular trips back, she says in an interview. A gala dinner is to be held in Auckland in July.You can watch a video interview with Frances and John on this link here:http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/better-business/8702415/Irishman-a-master-deal-maker  THE LATE HUGH GREEN TO BE HONOURED IN NEW ZEALAND was last modified: May 22nd, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:THE LATE HUGH GREEN TO BE HONOURED IN NEW ZEALANDlast_img
