Donegal Tourism is delighted with the positive response from businesses and community groups across Donegal who are set to go green for St. Patricks Day.


“We have had a great response to our call to ‘go green’” says Barney McLaughlin, Head of Tourism at Donegal County Council and Donegal Tourism.  “Businesses, organisations and community groups right across the county have plans in place to light up their businesses and local landmarks to celebrate St. Patricks Day”.


“This is a great opportunity for the community to get involved in our marketing and promotional campaigns.  We will be liking and sharing all the ‘green’ Donegal buildings and landmarks on our social media channels over the St. Patrick’s weekend and we would encourage everyone to do the same.  This is our opportunity to shine a ‘green’ light on the wonderful product we have here in Donegal and encourage people to come along and see and experience the county for themselves”.


“Good photographic imagery and videos have a massive impact on social media and we have seen the power of this marketing tool through the promotion of the Wild Atlantic Way over the last number of years.  Just use #greeningdonegal17 and tag in GoVisitDonegal in all your posts and we will do the rest” says Barney McLaughlin.


And if you haven’t your plans in place yet to go Green for St. Patricks Day then there is still time.  Check out  for all you need to know on how to go green this St. Patricks Day.
