'It's our day!'

Women in Letterkenny have been getting free health checks, advice and celebrating women’s health in the heart of the town thanks to the CDP this week.

This week is Women’s Health Week, a dedicated time for local women to assess their health and get vital information about their wellbeing.

The Letterkenny Community Development Project are hosting pop-up events from Wednesday-Friday, with free information stands and demos at the Market Centre on Market Square from 11am-5pm on Thursday and Friday 19th-20th April.


The Marie Keating Foundation Mobile Cancer Unit has parked up outside Ulster Bank this Thursday 19th April from 11am-4pm to bring free cancer information straight into the heart of the town. The unit is staffed by a specialist nurse, who is there to provide free information and help spread the message about cancer prevention and early detection.

The Marie Keating Foundation nurses can talk to people in a private area on board the unit about any concerns that they may have about cancer, either for themselves or for someone else such as a family member or friend.

Mayor of Donegal Gerry McMonagle visited the Letterkenny CDP team to show his support for their community work today.


The Letterkenny Community Development Project is a voluntary group who give their time freely to organise and plan programmes and events in the “Community for the Community”.

The CDP works with people of all ages and abilities to help them improve their lives, health and wellbeing. Most of the programmes are FREE or have a minimum fee to cover running costs. They have a charity shop in the Courtyard Shopping Centre to help raise funds to run some of the programmes.
