Tell the world why you #lovedonegal

WHY do you love Donegal?

That is the question to be answered this week when the #LoveDonegal day campaign returns.

The initiative, which is co-ordinated by Donegal County Council, will build on the huge success of last year’s campaign which reached an audience of 33 million people worldwide.


Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Rena Donaghy, said today she is delighted to be supporting the project.

“Last year’s #LoveDonegal day was such a momentous success, with people all over the world, coming together to celebrate Donegal, its people, landscapes, businesses, marine, sports, music, arts and food heritage. In light of recent challenges such as the Covid-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we come together and highlight Donegal as a destination of choice to live, work, invest, study or visit.”

Taking part is easy. All you have to do is include the hashtag #LoveDonegal in your tweets or posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Tik Tok on Wednesday that highlight what we love about Donegal, special places, people and things to do here. If you are Tweeting ‘as Gaeilge’, then add #DunnanGallAbú to your Tweets or posts too.

Director of Economic Development with Donegal County Council, Garry Martin, added, “We want everyone, young and old, with connections to the county or who loves Donegal to take part and encourage others to take part also. #LoveDonegal is a great opportunity to engage with the many people all over the world who have a fond connection with Donegal and want to share what they love about this spectacular county.

With more and more people looking to Donegal as a prime location to live, work and invest, this initiative is well placed to showcase what the county has to offer.”
