The continued enthusiasm and support of the local community was in action last week at the Rathmullan ‘The Way Forward’ meeting in the SVP Centre.
With over 80 people in attendance, support was on display for the work that has been done during a busy 18 months.
The meeting was attended by the local community, business owners, Christina O’Donnell from Donegal County Council and Maire Aine Gardiner from Failte Ireland.
After an introduction and outlined agenda, Mick McGlynn from TWF Support group gave an update on the communications plan covering the website, social media and branded marketing materials which will promote all events.
Speaking at the meeting, McGlynn said: “We’re delighted to see such a great turnout. We’ve made fantastic progress in the last 18 months as a community pulling together – it’s this coming together of talent and experience from all ages to benefit Rathmullan, that underpins everything The Way Forward does.”

She said: “I was at the very first public meeting when you all came along looking to make a difference to Rathmullan, and you should be very proud of everything you’ve achieved in a short time.”
The project has brought a host of events to Rathmullan, starting with the inaugural film festival last February.
That was followed by the launch of the new toilets and changing rooms, the Golf and Music festival, the 20th Community Festival, 185th Regatta Day and National Heritage Week.
In July, ‘Arriba Peru’ took place when the whole town turned red and white to join parish priest Fr Martin in supporting Peru in the World Cup.
However, the events are not finished yet, with the forthcoming Flight of the Earls Festival, Choral Festival and Fright of the Earls Halloween festival – it continues to be an action-packed year for the Donegal village.Tags:
