The launch, was performed at the Scottish Market by Lord Provost of Glasgow City Council, Sadie Docherty, and was attended by Pat Bourne, Irelandís Consul General in Scotland, staff of Tourism Ireland, Scottish tourism operators, executives from Donegal County Council and invited guests.

Ms Docherty told of her passion and love for Donegal and recalled many of her visits there.
She was particularly impressed with the cover of the brochure which features Mount Errigal and reminded her of the view from her own holiday home where she frequently visits with her extended family, said a Council spokesperson.
Donegal Tourism chairman Seamus Neely emphasised the strong relationship between both areas and said Scottish accents were commonplace in Donegal.
Council Cathaoirleach, Cllr John Campbell said the new brochure, which outlined the county's facilities and attractions, was being well received.
