TV personality and world adventurer Monty Halls, his wife Tamsyn and daughters Molly and Isla flew into Donegal Airport on Saturday and have been travelling all over the county filming with their company Seadog Productions.
Donegal County Council’s Tourism Unit has been working with Monty on a new marketing campaign that will see Donegal being promoted as an adventure destination with experiences to suit all the family. Landrover and Brig rib boats are also co-sponsors. Filming of footage will include 3600 filming, virtual reality footage, still imagery and a series of short films that will be promoted across social media, via the Go Visit Donegal website and through the marketing channels of all the sponsors.
Monty and his team will film many locations and activities across the five municipal districts of Donegal.
Barney McLaughlin, Head of Tourism with Donegal County Council was delighted to welcome Monty Halls and his family to Donegal adding that ‘we could not work on campaigns to promote Donegal such as this without the support of the businesses and community members in Donegal that have stepped up to help make Monty’s visit possible, we are very grateful for the assistance and hospitality shown in all of the places Monty has visited so far’.
Monty is well known for his BBC2 series ‘Great Escapes’ and he also presented the multi-award winning series ‘Great Barrier Reef’.
He will be continuing his Donegal adventure until June 8 when he will return to the UK to being editing and releasing footage.
