The biggest of the protest rallies will be in Letterkenny where organisers expect an estimated 5,000 to take to the streets of the county’s biggest town.
Marchers will gather at the Port Roundabout at 2pm before walking up the town’s Main Street before a number of speakers will address the crowd at Market Square.
A slightly smaller crowd is expected in Ballyshannon where a rally will start at the Abbey Centre at 2pm before protesting through the town.
A large crowd is also expected in the border town of Lifford for the third and final protest which also starts at 2pm.
Mayor of Donegal, Cllr John Campbell as well as councillors Micheal Mac Giolla Easbuig and Gary Doherty have appealed to people to take to the streets to make their voices heard.
Why I’ll be marching tomorrow – by Corinna McCallig, from Ardara.
“I am marching in Letterkenny tomorrow for one reason only – because most people can’t afford it. People forget that the Celtic Tiger by-passed Donegal apart from a few small pockets. We have four children and we can’t afford it. I have talked to women about this and they cry because they can hardly put food on their tables for their children nevermind find another €600. I am one of the lucky ones in that my husband now has a job. But he was unemployed for three months and we were hardly able to make ends meet. I am marching because I know in my heart of hearts that Irish Water is going to be privatised. We can’t let that happen. We have to stand up to the Government on this issue. As I speak I am looking outside my window because I know Irish Water are calling to my house in the next few days to install water meters. I will physically stop them from doing that. I will never pay for water because I feel we are already paying for it. That is why I am marching in Letterkenny and I would ask for as many people to join us as possible. We have to stand together on this issue.”
