The Diaspora project has been established to act as resource for the economic, social and cultural development of Donegal. It is working in an innovative, cross-sectoral way to connect the North West with her global Diaspora family, creating linkages that develop skills, experience, networks and resources for the County.

The "Donegal - Community In Touch / Dún na nGall - Pobail I D'teagmháil" E-zine
The "Donegal - community in touch / Dún na nGall - pobail i d'teagmháil" E-zine newsletter was first published in November 2008 and is an electronic newsletter targeted at our diaspora community, providing current information on local news, educational opportunities, business, events and stories of interest. Twenty editions of the “Donegal Community in Touch” ezine have been produced to date. The ezine is divided into five key sectors/areas of interest: News, Donegal Business, Education and Learning, Social and Cultural, and Donegal Community Links. The e-zine content is provided by partners from a range of sectors – community and voluntary, statutory, local development, educational institutions, chambers of commerce, private sector industry and business, and represents a true partnership approach to the joint promotion of the region.
The ezine also aims to continually build a network of people with a connection to Donegal, particularly through the Donegal Community Links section. In the “Donegal Business” section of the ezine, economic development agencies provide content that highlights the supports and initiatives that are available for companies interesting in locating in CountyDonegal. This section aims to support efforts for economic, enterprise development and job creation in the region.
The ezine also acts as a point of contact for persons making enquiries regarding returning to the region and acts as a signposting mechanism for information on opportunities in the region. The publication team receives and responds to queries on an ongoing basis and works with other partners to direct enquiries appropriately and provide required support.
The e-zine will continue to be published by Donegal County Council as an element of the overall Donegal Diaspora project. For more information visit www.donegaldiaspora.ie
