Donegal Connect weekend in Inishowen 10.10.22

DONEGAL Connect took place across the weekend of 22-25 September 2022.
An Cathaoirleach Cllr. Liam Blaney said: “Firstly, it was fantastic to have Donegal Connect back as an in-person event for 2022. Reconnecting with our Diaspora and those with a love of Donegal has been an important theme for 2022 in general and Donegal Connect reflected that in so many ways. It was especially prevalent at the Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Awards with so many familiar faces having travelled from America and the UK to be with us. We are looking forward to building on this momentum for 2023”.

The anchor event of the weekend was the prestigious Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Awards which took place at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel in Buncrana on 23rd September. Kathleen Sheerin, Dr. Susan K. Whoriskey, Moya Doherty and Ann & Mark Baiada were all honoured for their contribution in their respective fields.
The Swan Park Carnival in Buncrana.
Across the weekend a number of festivals took place including the Disappear Here Film Festival in Ballyliffin.
At Swan Park in Buncrana a carnival atmosphere was in the air as performances by the Inishowen Carnival Group transformed the recently redeveloped park into a mythical wonderland. With over 1600 attendees on the day it was a massive success and everyone had a fantastic time.
