Donegal had one of the busiest programmes of any area in the country during a highly succeful national Heritage Week.

Last week there were more than 100 events registered to take part in all corners of the county.

National Heritage Week ran from Saturday, August 20 until yesterday Sunday, August 28.

An event guide was compiled by the County Donegal Heritage Office of Donegal County Council and was available free-of-charge in tourist offices, libraries, museums and heritage centres across the county.

With over 110 events planned, County Donegal is the county with the most Heritage Week events per head of population in Ireland.

“The continued success of ‘Heritage Week’ in County Donegal is due to those people who organise events for ‘Heritage Week’ and those people who support them,” said Cllr. Terence Slowey, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council last week.
