  • Donegal newsletter a splendid example of global outreach

    Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

    The Donegal Diaspora Project has published its latest newsletter online. “Donegal – community in touch” is a Donegal County Council initiative to keep in touch with the Donegal diaspora, and is a splendid model for a county-level global outreach.

    Some sample articles:

    • Soccer legend Packy Bonner talking about his “Donegalitis”, an illness he has no desire ever to receive treatment for.
    • Information on MacGill Summer School
    • News of Donegal-born doctor being named GP of the year in Australia
    • Donegal participation in Brussels’ first St Patricks Day parade
    • Reports on publications focusing on Donegal emigration, the Flight of the Earls, GAA

    It’s a lively mix of business, culture, social and community news. Highly recommended.

    The Donegal Diaspora Project, a joint effort by the Donegal County Council and Derry City Council, is aimed at people living and working in other parts of the country or the world who wish to return to work or set up a business, or support development in the NorthWest region.
