Welcome to Donegal Connect!
8th October 2020
Donegal Connect is an initiative of Donegal County Council Local Enterprise Office and Economic Development Unit who are working in collaboration to deliver this year’s virtual Donegal Connect to audiences around the world.
In what has been a particularly challenging year due to the pandemic and Brexit, our links with friends and family around the world are even more important than ever. While we cannot be with each other in person, virtual Donegal Connect offers us the chance to reach out to each other using new technology such as online events and virtual reality and to remain connected.
