US Embassy delegates visit Inishowen 12.03.14

DELEGATES from the US Embassy visited Inishowen earlier this week to see the impact of a number of local peace-building projects.
Senior political advisor Lynne Gadkowski and political affairs advisor Peter Glennon were guests of Donegal County Council.
"This visit provided an opportunity for delegates to gain an insight into some of the innovative projects funded under the PEACE III Programme in Donegal, giving them a flavour of the peace building work accomplished locally and the impact that this work has had on local communities on both a cross border and cross community basis," said a council spokesperson.
