Market Square, Letterkenny-A Space for People 


The public are invited to vote for their favourite design concept to re-imagine Market Square


Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Donegal County Council launched an architectural competition in July 2020 to re-imagine Market Square as a great public place that people want to experience and spend time in. The public are now invited to vote for their favourite design from the 6 shortlisted submissions.


The brief for the competition invited concept design proposals to imagine how Market Square can be a central public space that conveys and communicates the DNA of Letterkenny and its people and fully meets the need for useable public and civic space in the heart of the town centre.


The public can get involved by checking out the shortlisted design concepts at and voting for their favourite. Votes can be placed up to midnight on Friday 30th April 2021. Information relating to the shortlisted design concepts can also be viewed in the shop window of ‘A-Wear’ on Main Street, Letterkenny and a QR code is also displayed that can be scanned and links to the online voting page. As a key component of the competition, the public votes will directly inform the final decision of the Evaluation Team on the winning design concept. Following the architectural competition, further design and development will be undertaken towards planning consent and ultimately delivery.
