Up Donegal!

The coronavirus Covid-19 emergency has turned our lives upside down.

It’s a time of fear, isolation and confusion, but it’s also a time for communities to shine and to support those who need us most.

The closure of schools and businesses has disrupted our daily routines. Social-distancing makes us rethink our every plan.

Sometimes, we simply don’t know what to do.

But we’re all in the same boat. We’re all in this together and it’s important to remember why ordinary life has suddenly been put on hold – to protect our loved ones and to help healthcare workers meet the challenge that’s ahead.

These uncertain weeks are about coming together, while we stay apart.

We have asked some well known local faces to share their thoughts, tips and words of reassurance at this time. People from the world of sport, music, business, travel, entertainment, education, hospitality and family life in Donegal have come together to share these messages with you:

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this special video, from the Donegal Daily team.
