Virtual Donegal Connect
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.

Tá Nasc Dhún na nGall 2020 seolta go hoifigiúil agus beidh Clár Imeachtaí lán brí agus eolais ar siúl Déardaoin 8 Deireadh Fómhair. I measc téamaí na bliana seo beidh an t-athlonnú go Dún na nGall, an chianobair, nuálaíocht ghnó, turasóireacht agus seó mór ceol traidisiúnta.
Agus í ag caint ag seoladh Nasc Dhún na nGall, dúirt an Clr. Rena Nic Dhonnachaidh, Cathaoirleach ar Chomhairle Contae Dhún na nGall: “is tábhachtaí anois ná riamh coinneáil i dteagmháil leis an Diaspóra s’againne thar lear agus laistigh d’Éirinn. De bhrí go bhfuil an ócáid ar líne in 2020, thig le muintir Dhún na nGall, ó chian is ó chóngar, bheith páirteach agus iad slán sábháilte sa bhaile, agus thig leo níos mó a fhoghlaim faoi na ghnéithe éagsúla a bhaineann le gnó, turasóireacht agus cultúr i nDún na nGall.”
