Why #LoveDonegal day is so important

As part of Donegal Connect, we want to extend our links with those who have Donegal roots or connections around the world (our Diaspora), and to promote the county to the widest possible global audience. Donegal Connect is funded by Fáilte Ireland and works to strengthen our links with the Donegal Diaspora to benefit both them and the county. We want more people to visit, take jobs here, invest in the county, start business here, relocate or retire here, to grow our local economy.

You can take part by

Tweeting personally from your personal account using #LoveDonegal

Tweeting from your work, club or group twitter accounts, if available

Retweeting other #LoveDonegal tweets (and posting to Instagram too)

Asking your friends & family at home and abroad to join in

If everyone acts together, then we can get Donegal trending

& highlight the many wonderful things we all love about our county.
