  MissScarlett: Apparently, his score at the Trebitsch Memorial was a forgettable -19 =1.

  Telemus: <MissScarlett: Apparently, ..> ???

In the 19th Trebitsch Memorial (1936) Donegan scored 3 points (=6, -9) and shared 15th place.

In the 20th edition (1937-38) Donegan scored 0.5/11.

Together with Euwe and Spielmann he led the tournament Semmering/Baden (1937) and in this context he was at least once called a "Schachmäzen" (chess patron).
