    Donegal publishes latest for global community

    By Noreen Bowden | November 13, 2009

    Donegal County Council has published the latest edition of its wonderful newsletter, “Donegal – Community in touch”.

    As usual, lots of great stuff! Included are reports on:

    • The launch of “The Fid”, the Moville Emigrant Monument, commemorating the thousands of Irish who went to New Brunswick, as well as a schools programme linking schoolchildren in Moville and New Brunswick
    • The MacGill summer school and a related publication
    • The Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce and the School of Tourism at Letterkenny Institute of Technology
    • the first-ever reunion of Falcarragh people from home and abroad
    • a new social organisation called Go Irish Boston, comprised of Irish and Irish-American people
    • the launch of Fado, a memoir by Irish-American musician Kevin O’Donnel, the child of Donegal immigrants.

    There is much more here – it’s a great collection of news and resources that will be of interest to Donegal people at home and abroad. If only more counties would produce such resources – this is a model that would be very useful throughout Ireland.

    Read the publication online on the Donegal County Council website.
