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.
