Lighting up the Big Donegal Clean Up 27.03.19

FANAD Lighthouse provided the stunning backdrop for the launch of this year’s Big Donegal Clean Up. Hundreds of volunteers from right across Donegal, including Inishowen, will once again take to the highways and byways to gather litter and get the county looking clean and green.
“This is the fifth year of the Big Donegal Clean Up and each year it has grown more and more popular” says Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Seamus O’Domhnaill.
“It is a real partnership between Donegal County Council and the hundreds of communities around the county who come together to lift litter and clean their own areas. We are fortunate to have such active communities and people who care so much about their own areas."

Michael McGarvey Director of Service with Donegal County Council said “last year was an important year for Donegal with the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in Ballyliffin. Donegal was showcased to millions of people across the globe and it looked spectacular. This was not just because of the weather but because of the hard work done by the hundreds of volunteers right across the county lifting litter and having their towns and villages looking superb. Last year’s Big Donegal Clean Up was a great success and this year is shaping up to be another successful year”.
This campaign sees the Council supporting individuals, groups, businesses and organisations in organising their own clean-ups. The Council provides bags, gloves and litter pickers and arranges for the collection of the rubbish once it has been bagged.
