The hugely popular #LoveDonegal campaign will return on Thursday September 8th 2022, building on the success of previous campaigns and public interest.

Last year’s campaign reached over 17 million people across the world and had Donegal trending for several days across social media outlets. The campaign also won the Local Authority LAMA Awards in 2021 for the ‘Best Innovation for attracting inward investment’!

This year’s campaign centres on celebrating the art and creativity of Donegal and organisers of the event, Donegal County Council, want everyone to get involved and showcase their love for Donegal creatively. Whether it’s painting, drawing, sculpting or singing, music, dancing, or any other form of art. Your submissions are requested! 

Taking part online is simple. All you have to do is use the #LoveDonegal or #DúnnanGallAbú in your social media posts (across twitter and Instagram) on Thursday the 8th of September. You can also tag the us on Instagram (@Donegal_IrelandsDNA) and Twitter (Donegal_ie).

Social Posts can include:

  • Visiting, travelling and exploring Donegal.
  • The people of Donegal.
  • The landscape, coastline, islands, landmarks and scenery of Donegal.
  • Music, Arts, Sport, Marine, Culture, Food.
  • Local Businesses based in Donegal, working remotely and the Working Holiday Campaign.

#LoveDonegal day is being held just two weeks in advance of Donegal Connect, a 3 day festival taking place from 23rd to 25th September celebrating Donegal’s connections right across the world.
