Donegal is already trending online in the first hours of #LoveDonegal day.

The annual campaign is back this Thursday to promote Donegal to millions across the world.

The Donegal County Council initiative calls on Donegal people to share why the county is a unique and amazing place to live, work, study, explore and invest in.

Hollywood actor Aidan Quinn is among the star names sharing their love for the county today. Quinn has been spending time in Inishowen filming the new drama ‘Cry From the Sea’.

Garry Martin, Director of Economic Development with Donegal County Council explains the importance for this event for Donegal. “#LoveDonegal day is an important event in the calendar for the region as it gives everyone with a connection to Donegal an opportunity to enjoy, celebrate and love Donegal. We can share what makes Donegal special to us with families and friends in other regions throughout the globe (our world-wide Donegal family) and promote our county, and it’s amazing offering, to the widest possible global audience”
