Through waves of emigration across the centuries, Donegal’s Diaspora has spread its DNA far and wide across the globe….. to North America, the UK, and far beyond….
We have big hearts in Donegal and our Diaspora includes all those with a connection to the county. So, if your connections go way back, come over and explore your roots, with the help of the Donegal County Museum genealogical services. Or simply visit to explore this wild and wonderful county.
Traditional support networks, like the Donegal Associations, were often the main point of contact for young people leaving Donegal for the US or UK to Discover, Nurture and Advise. Today, our Diaspora link up through social media, online media, digital newsletters, websites and other digital platforms.
Fort Dunree, located on the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal, is a well known tourist attraction situated on 70 acres of coastal grounds which was a former military site and currently contains a Military Museum, numerous breath-taking walking trails, a café, a Lighthouse, a Wild Atlantic Way (WAW) Discovery Point, disused military buildings and more.
A multimillion-euro investment in Fort Dunree is currently underway, funded by Failte Ireland and Donegal County Council, to develop Fort Dunree as a transformational tourist destination targeting to attract in excess of 110,000 annual paying visitors by 2036.
Fort Dunree Military Museum (FDMM) CLG have a key role in developing the commercial strategies for the enhanced visitor experience. To support the ambitions for the site, it is proposed to augment the existing skillsets of the Board of FDMM Clg through the appointment of a new Board Chairperson and Directors.
