Our big brother Donegal Daily has had another amazing year bringing you all the news and views from across our brilliant county.

As an early Christmas present to our readers, we are hosting the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!

Every second day from now until December 24th, we will be offering an unbelievably good prize.

The tenth prize was an amazing one night stay at the stunning Caste Grove Country House Hotel, with champagne afternoon tea and dinner for two. 

Congratulations to our Facebook follower Louise Crossan! You’re the winner!

It’s time to bring you DAY ELEVEN’s fabulous prize.
