At Donegal Live we can help you send a loving message from your children to their grandparents

Your message will cheer up grandparents who are feeling isolated


Let us help you bring some joy to cocooned grandparents

We all know that grandparents are special, and that many children are missing their granny and granddad at the moment. 

And we know grandparents who are staying safe by cocooning are missing their beloved grandchildren too.

Here at Donegal Live we are inviting readers to send us photographs of their children either taken in recent days, or along with their grandparents before the Covid-19 crisis began. Photographs can be accompanied by a short, special message telling grandparents how much they are loved. 

We will publish them in our newspapers Donegal Post, Donegal Democrat, Donegal People’s Press and Inish Times, and online here at

This will be a lovely surprise for grandparents who are feeling lonely right now. It will really cheer them up to have a special message from the most precious people in their lives - their grandchildren.

To be included, please email your photograph and message to and put ‘grandparents’ in the subject line.

Let us know where you are in the county so we will know which paper in which of our newspapers to feature your message.

Please send us your photos by Sunday, April 5 at 10pm for inclusion in next week's papers.

If you have a story or want to send a photo or video to us please contact the Donegal Live editorial team any time. To contact Donegal Democrat and Donegal People's Press, email To contact Donegal Post, email To contact Inish Times, email
