How happy are we in Donegal?
HOW happy are we in
Donegal? That’s the question that a new survey being
undertaken by Donegal County Council’s Research and
Policy Unit is trying to answer.
This survey, known as the Donegal Happiness Survey
is being undertaken on behalf of the Donegal Local
Community Development Committee (LCDC), who want to
find out how residents in County Donegal rate their
quality of life, their satisfaction levels with
existing services, their links to their surrounding
community and their expectations for their futures.
Speaking this week, Cllr. Martin McDermott Chair of
the Donegal LCDC
said that he is hoping that as many people as
possible will take part in this survey.
“We are keen to hear from all parts of Donegal and
from people of different ages, backgrounds and
interests about what is important to them and how
they would rate their quality of life in Donegal”
said Cllr. McDermott.

He added “this survey
will be carried out on an annual basis and it will
provide an important benchmark on the quality of
life that currently exists across different rural
and urban locations in the county. The findings
will help us inform future plans and policies of the
Donegal LCDC and all the agencies and partner
organisations involved with the committee”.
This survey will be live from Monday 22 to Sunday 28
October, 2018 and can be completed online at
www.donegalcoco.ie or can also be filled out in
written form with questionnaires available at a
number of outlets around the county including
council offices, libraries and community centres.
