The #LoveDonegal day campaigh will return this year on Wednesday, September 16 to once again showcase Donegal to a worldwide audience.
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.
Cllr Rena Donaghy, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council is delighted to be supporting this initiative, she said: "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”.
She added that in recent months there has been a growing interest among the Donegal diaspora and indeed,
city dwellers and businesses, to relocate to Donegal and the #LoveDonegal campaign aims to build on this trend.
It is hoped that the initiative will strengthen global links, to grow the economy.
"I would encourage as many people as possible to spread the word and get involved in this fantastic initiative," the Cathaoirleach said.
