#LoveDonegal has become Ireland’s top trending tag on Twitter this morning as the promotional campaign kicks off online.
What do you love about Donegal?
Our people, landscapes, businesses, marine, sports, music, arts or food? Is it walks on our many beaches, a sip of Football Special, or listening to the music legend Daniel O’Donnell?
Today is the day to tell the world what you love about the county, as social media users check out what all the fuss is about with #LoveDonegal.
The initiative, which is co-ordinated by Donegal County Council, aims to build on the huge success of last year’s campaign which reached an audience of 33 million people worldwide.
Everyone is invited to take part. All you have to do is include the hashtag #LoveDonegal in your tweets or posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Tik Tok on Wednesday 16th September that highlight what we love about Donegal, special places, people and things to do here. If you are Tweeting ‘as Gaeilge’, then add #DunnanGallAbú to your Tweets or posts too.
Cllr Rena Donaghy, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council is delighted to be supporting this initiative saying: “In recent months we have seen a growing interest among the Donegal diaspora and indeed, city dwellers and businesses, to relocate to Donegal and the #LoveDonegal campaign aims to build on this trend and strengthen our global links, to grow our economy. I would encourage as many people as possible to spread the word and get involved in this fantastic initiative. ”
Garry Martin, Director of Economic Development with Donegal County Council added: “We want everyone, young and old, with connections to the county or who loves Donegal to take part and encourage others to take part also. #LoveDonegal is a great opportunity to engage with the many people all over the world who have a fond connection with Donegal and want to share what they love about this spectacular county. With more and more people looking to Donegal as a prime location to live, work and invest, this initiative is well placed to showcase what the county has to offer.”
