The Donegal County Council in partnership with Western Development Commission recently launched an industry focused Image Bank for the county.
The image bank, which is the latest element of the Councils partnership work with the WDC has been created to highlight the opportunities for highly skilled career choices across the region. The images, all taken by professional Donegal based photographer Paul McGuckian will now become freely available for those who wish to promote Donegal and the Northwest as a location to live, work and invest in.
The project, which had been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic was restarted in recent months with the photographer spending time across the county of Donegal to ensure all sectors across FDI, Indigenous companies, the start-up community, the food scene and more was captured. Choosing the companies and organising the logistics of each shoot was a collaboration between the team at the WDC, The Atlantic Economic Corridor officer and Donegal County Council.
The variety of high-quality images includes MMG Welding, TCS Consulting, Swan Net Gundry, Donegal Craft Village, The CoLab at Letterkenny campus and others.
Donegal County Council Cathaoirleach Cllr. Jack Murray said “Donegal County Council welcome the launch of this Image Bank project, having worked closely with the WDC during its delivery. We would like to extend a special thanks to all the businesses and locations that have agreed to take part. We look forward to utilizing these images along with our strategic partners as we strive to help promote Donegal for new and expanding investment opportunities”.
CEO of the Western Development Commission, Tomás Ó Síocháin, commented on the launch.
“The image bank is an integral part of our More to Life campaign. These high-quality images, which are free to use, will support the Donegal community, our key stakeholders and our diaspora to showcase the wide-ranging roles available across tech, pharma, retail, customer service and more so that together, we can help Donegal to recover in 2022 and beyond.”
