Fáilte to the Donegal Diaspora website. This is just the beginning of what promises to be a major project for Donegal and her people - wherever they may be. The Donegal Diaspora project is a fresh new way of championing this fantastic county, drawing attention to all that's wonderful here. Donegal is a place to be proud of and throughout the world, members of our global community represent their homeplace with a sense of that pride every day. 

This project, through the website you see today, will reach out to all those people who have a connection to Donegal and strengthen the ties home. Diaspora work is all about reaching out and engaging with the people of Donegal, telling the stories of our county and our global community in a fresh new way. Its about encouraging people to pay attention to Donegal, to promote it and invest in the county, whatever way they can. Fundamentally its about allowing people to enjoy Donegal - and there is so much to enjoy! 

Your feedback is essential. Are you a member of the diaspora? Then tell us what you want to see on this website and from this project. Are you based in Donegal? Then spread the word about the project and make it better by getting involved yourself. 

This project welcomes all constructive comment, ideas and opintion so feel free to get in touch. Have we made a spelling mistake on the website - let us know! Also, check out our facebook/twitter/pinterest/linkedin sites - there are lots of different ways to get involved. Upload your favourite pictures of Donegal, tell us a story about YOUR Donegal or someone you know who represents the county and should be featured on the website. 

The future is bright. We look forward to making the connection with you. 

With best wishes / Le gach dea-ghuí
