Donegal Gathering is a key initiative of the Donegal Diaspora project bringing together young and old, from near and far, for a truly unique experience.

This tourism initiative showcases some of the major cultural events and festivals taking place throughout County Donegal, extending a heartfelt welcome to both native emigrants planning a homecoming holiday, and first-time explorers embarking on a truly unique adventure.

We showcase the best that Donegal has to offer throughout the year.

Is togra tábhachtach de chuid Dhiaspóra Dhún na nGall é Slógadh Dhún na nGall, ar cuspóir leis an t-óg agus an sean a thabhairt le chéile, ó chian agus ó chóngar, le go mbeadh am ar dóigh acu le chéile.

Tá an togra turasóireachta seo ina ardán poiblíochta ag cuid de na mór-imeachtaí cultúrtha agus féilte cultúrtha a bhíonn ar siúl ar fud Chontae Dhún na nGall, ag cur fáilte ‘na bhaile roimh lucht deoraíochta an chontae agus iad ar ais ar saoire, agus roimh chuairteoirí úra atá ar thóir na heachtraíochta.

Cuirimid rogha agus togha an chontae chun cinn, agus déanaimid poiblíocht, fógraíocht agus margaíocht ar a son.
