The Donegal business community has been dealt a huge blow with the closure of many shops, bars, restaurants and other outlets.
But the reality is that life must go on until we get over this challenge which we as a community have been set.
We still all need the essential items such as food as well as fuel for heating our homes at this time.
And on top of this many will still continue to shop, be it for household goods or clothing.
Many local businesses continue to trade online behind closed doors in a bid to support their own workers and businesses which they have built up over many years.
We at Donegal Daily only exist because of the support of the local community and those very businesses.
We want to assure you that we will continue to bring our loyal readers news each and every hour as it happens.
As well as the latest local news on the situation we find ourselves in, we will bring you all the other news which is happening in our community.
We will make you a promise that we will continue to bring you the news each and every day during this crisis – if you are at home in Donegal or abroad.
If you are a business and would like to let our 50,000 daily readers across Donegal know that you are still open for business please get in touch.
You can do this by contacting Don on email@example.com or by calling 0858504125.
If you are a community group or want to tell us about how your community is responding at this time please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Together we will get through this!
