WATCH: A sad and haunting video shot from an empty Donegal bar which is annually filled to the brim on St Patrick's day

It certainly is not one of our usual Donegal St Patrick's day celebrations but we hope you are having a great one

There are no pints being pulled and no traditional music being played in one of the most popular pubs in the Rosses area.

Every bar in the country is the same but when you are afforded the opportunity off seeing inside an empty bar and lounge today - it really makes you think. 

This video shot inside Sharkey's Bar in Annagry is in total contrast to other years where locals would sit at the bar and sing songs and play tunes. Pints flowed and people enjoyed a great atmosphere. Visitors would often come home to Annagry to celebrate with friends and family. This year, they didn't. 

This video shows how different it is this year.
