A REVISED edition of the Dungloe and a Rosses tourism brochure was launched in Ionad Teampall Cróine in Dungloe last Wednesday night by Pat the Cope Gallagher.
The 50-page bi-lingual full colour brochure gives a great insight into tourism, accommodation, activities, festivals, events, and many other Rosses related services and activities.
It follows on from a previous version published some years ago that was launched by Daniel and Majella O’Donnell. This one has been totally updated with new and revised information to reflect changing times, businesses and events in the general Rosses area.
Gráinne Nic Niallais of Baile Seirbhíse Gaeltachta and Chlochán Leith welcome everyone to the launch and said they are delighted to be making this revised brochure available for general distribution.
“Thank you to all who have attended the official launch of the Dungloe and Rosses tourism brochure here this evening.

Pat the Cope Gallagher congratulated all those involved in compiling the brochure and the detailed information it contains.
He said it is a great publication not just for tourists but for locals too as it contains a wealth of local knowledge and information.
“Comhghairdeas libh uillig as seo a chur ar fáil,” he added.
