Donegal Culture
This site illustrates the high level of arts activity in the Rosses and Gaoth Dobhair area of County Donegal in three feature articles. Two recent commemorative festivals, the Peadar O¹Donnell Weekend and the Frankie Kennedy Winter School are reviewed. The need for improved cultural infrastructure in the area is reflected in a series of proposals to develop new venues which have arisen from a number of sources. One of these proposals, to develop the former ESB power station at Mín a Cuinge into a Centre for Arts, Heritage and Culture, is described.
Donegal Town
Located at the mouth of Donegal Bay in the North-West of Ireland and surrounded by the vista of the Blue Stack mountains, the area offers a rugged beauty and mystique that you are unlikely to find anywhere else in the world! From Slieve League, the highest sea cliffs in Europe to the miles of golden sandy beaches, the region provides activities ranging from high octane water sports to unforgettable country strolls.
Glencolmcille
This is a very beautiful part of the country, with breathtaking scenery, ideal for walkers and take in the stunning Slieve League Peninsula. Vist the ruins of the church set up by St Columba, the many standing stones and Christian crosses.
Clonmany
Situated in north east Inishowen , the most northerly peninsula in both County Donegal and Ireland. The parish consists of two villages, Clonmany (known as the Cross to locals) and Ballyliffin, and is surrounded by a treasure trove of outstanding natural beauty, historic landmarks, intriguing characters and genuine traditional Irish pubs, its gentle atmosphere is a haven of relaxation and enjoyment. This cosy, vibrant area was once described as ‘the most Irish parish’ and when savoured in all its glory it is the epitome of Irish culture and landscape. This site aims to provide information for locals, emigrants, tourists and anybody who has an interest in Irish Heritage and Genealogy
