Lift-off for Donegal Connect 06.03.19

DONEGAL Airport provided the stunning backdrop for the launch of Donegal Connect, a new initiative to reach out to all those who have an affinity for Donegal and enticing them to come back for a 10 day celebration this autumn.
Donegal Connect will take place from 27 September - 6 October, 2019. It will continue to strengthen links with Donegal people both on the island of Ireland and across the world by reaching out to them and inviting them to come home and connect again with the county.
The celebration will have something for everyone with a strong focus on food, genealogy, culture, heritage, sport and music and in particular on employment and business development opportunities.
Pictured at the launch of Donegal Connect is Cllr. Micheal Cholm MacGiollaEasbuig, Cllr. Enda Bonner, Cllr. Niamh Kennedy, Cllr. Seamus O’Domhnaill (Cathaoirleach), Packie Bonner and Mairead Ní Mhaoinaigh.
Highlighting business development and career opportunities in Donegal is an important element of Donegal Connect which will include business networking events and seminars, a careers symposium and workshops on the practicalities of relocating or returning to Donegal as well as a series of events showcasing the superb quality of life opportunities on offer.
Irish soccer legend and former Ireland goalie Packie Bonner and Irish traditional musician Mairead Ní Mhaonaigh were on hand to help launch Donegal Connect along with video messages from golfer Paul McGinley and Donegal Associations in New York and Philadelphia.
Invited guests were treated to a wonderful display of Irish traditional music by An Chrannóg.
