Thousands expected in Donegal for rally weekend

The Donegal International Rally gets underway this morning, with thousands of visitors in the county for what is one of the biggest events of the year.

Gardai are promising a significant presence on the roads over the next three days, and are urging people to obey marshalls at all times.

There will be road closures in place at various locations over the weekend, with the Lough Swilly Ferry saying it will be dedicated to foot passengers while town stages are being held in Buncrana.

Inspector Michael Harrison had this advice for anybody attending the rally .
