IT has been hailed as the greatest boost for tourism for Donegal ever.
And tomorrow a little bit of Dublin will become another parish of our county as Donegal Live squeezes into the limelight – sandwiched between historic visits by Britain’s queen Elizabeth and US President Barrack Obama.
Donegal Live is a major tourism initiative to attract tourists to the county.
Earlier this month a similar event in Glasgow attracted 20,000 people.
Up to 20 tourism sectors will be represented at the Donegal Live event which takes places the Iveagh Gardens tomorrow between 12.00 noon to 6.00pm.
The tourism promotional event is created and funded by a number of organisations including the Donegal Association in Dublin, Donegal Tourism Ltd., Failte Ireland North West, and Donegal County Council.
Martina Bromley from Failte Ireland North West, says it’s a great opportunity to showcase Donegal to the country.
One of the organisers Paul McLoone insisted: “The profile of Donegal has been superb over the past couple of days and it will be even higher on Sunday.”
Events include concerts and exhibitions – all showing off our best hotels and culture.
