It’s all about Donegal tonight on RTE’s Nationwide as cameras head to the north west for two special TV features.
Many local people will be looking forward to seeing the episode, which airs at 7pm and explores some of the best parts of the county with the help of hotelier Noel Cunningham.
The presenter will show all that Donegal has to offer visitors and how it’s not ‘the back of beyond’.

Noel, who is the General Manager of Harvey’s Point, takes Mary Kennedy on a journey to the places he loves, such as Kilcar, Sliabh Liag and Ahoy Cafe Killybegs.
Noel will also be talking about his personal life and the challenges of growing up gay in rural Donegal.
Always a keen ambassador for the county, Noel says this of Donegal: “A little remote, yes. But God bless this remote, I love it.”
The programme will also visit Killybegs Catering College as it celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
Eileen Magnier’s report will go behind the scenes at the LYIT college and find out how it produces not just the best people for its own tourism businesses, but for hotels, restaurants and attractions nationally and internationally.
