    I’m putting together a book, which includes an old interview with the former Republic of Ireland international Don Donovan. I think Don is in the middle picture wearing the number 2 shirt.

    Could i have your permission to use this photo in the book. This will, of course, be acknowledged.

    I’ve decided to include the photo in the book. Could you send me a copy of the original photo or, failing that, a scan of it?

    Also, do you hold the copyright for the photo? if not, can you tell me who does.

      Hello, I don’t have the copyrights of any of the photos I’ve posted in this site. I have gathered them from many sources, mainly Internet. In this case, they’re all from the Web. Best regards.
