Santa has been spotted at the Randox plant in Dungloe.
Word has it that the big man and his reindeer stopped off at the plant around 3.30pm this afternoon to get a special glimpse at Covid-19 testing centre.
Mr Claus wanted to see the trojan work being done at the centre.
So he contacted the head scientist at the West Donegal medical plant, Dr B Bettersoon to request a last minute check-up and to get a look around the plant.
Along with two cups of hot chocolate Santa is understood to be in flying form and ready to deliver presents across Donegal from Bundoran to Buncrana and everywhere in between.
It is understood that Santa is due to have a slice of Christmas pudding at the North Pole bar in Drumfries outside Clonmany – while socially distancing from locals!
Local lads Peter Holly and Chris Massey denied rumours that Santa didn’t sanitise his hands when he left the loo.
He was also rumoured to have dropped into DMG Motors outside Donegal Town where the lads there gave his sleigh the once over to ensure it’s sky-worthy for the long haul ahead tonight.
Santa is due to touch down in some houses in Donegal from as early as 7pm this evening so boys and girls are asked to get to bed early tonight.
He was overheard telling local postwoman Mary Nooyear how good the children of Donegal have been since the lockdown came in last March and how they have behaved themselves impeccably and done everything their parents asked of them.
He said 2021 is going to be a much better year and hopefully children will be able to see all their friends again and return to playing sport.
