Do you know a breathtaking area in Donegal that you think should be shared with the world?
Local people on the Wild Atlantic Way are being asked to share their hidden gems on social media this month for a chance to win a 2-night holiday.
A new initiative ‘Call of the Wild’ has been launched by Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin.
The campaign aims to give local people on the Wild Atlantic Way the opportunity to have their hidden gems included in a global social media campaign, while at the same time highlight to their own social network the beauty of the locality as a holiday destination.
Is there a beautiful Donegal beach you know that’s always empty? A waterfall that deserves to be on a postcard? An amazing viewpoint you always visit?
You can photos and videos that showcase the beauty of the West Coast on social media using the hashtag #MyWildAtlanticWay. Everyone who gets involved will have the chance to win a 2-night getaway along the Wild Atlantic Way. The competition closes on October 31st.
The best photos and videos will be shared by Tourism Ireland on its social platforms with millions of potential holidaymakers around the world.
To launch the initiative in Donegal, Fáilte Ireland will team up with footballer Michael Murphy to make him a Call of the Wild’ ambassador for the region. Murphy will lead the way by sharing some of his favourite destinations in the region across his social media accounts.
In launching the initiative, Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin said: “From stunning landscapes to exquisite food, there are many hidden gems along the Wild Atlantic Way known to locals, but undiscovered by the rest of the world.
“We are asking local people along the Wild Atlantic Way to share their own ‘hidden gems’ with the world and help spread the word about the beauty of the West Coast by sharing their own photos or videos on social media using the hashtag #MyWildAtlanticWay.”Tags:
