THE national flag will fly at half mast outside all Donegal County Council buildings on Monday.
The Department of the Taoiseach has contacted the local authority and Chief Executive John McLaughlin has relayed the request to elected members.
In its email, the Department said, “I would appreciate if you could arrange for the flying, at half-mast, of the National Flag from all buildings, if any, under your control equipped with a permanent flagpole on Monday September, the day of the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“Please note that if the EU flag is also flown from your building, this should be taken down while the National Flag is at half-mast.
“If you have a National Flag that is illuminated, it should be similarly half-masted on the day and then returned to full mast the following morning.”
