Council statement -

Donegal, a great place to live, work and do business 

Speaking prior to the launch Cathaoirleach Cllr. Ciaran Brogan said "we have recently had two major business expansion announcements in the county with Randox and just last week Pramerica and this is a great endorsement for Donegal.  This Prospectus will have a very important role in presenting Donegal as an excellent place to do business for companies thinking of locating in Ireland outlining the ease of access, the ever-developing infrastructure and the world class ICT facilities."

The Donegal Prospectus includes a profile of a small selection of the businesses currently located in Donegal as well as detail on Education, Research and Development, Connectivity, Health Services, Culture, Heritage and Arts, Killybegs, the North West Gateway Initiative, Scenic Donegal and Attractions, An Ghaeltacht, Recreational and Sporting Activities and Access as well as featuring some of Donegal's most well known people.

Also speaking before the launch Chief Executive, Seamus Neely said "we are delighted to have been able to showcase a small selection of successful companies operating in Donegal in this Prospectus.   The Council has had the opportunity to work with many of these companies over the years and together with other support agencies we will continue to support new and existing companies doing business in Donegal".

He added "Donegal is also fortunate to have many well known ambassadors and people who have a special love for Donegal and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with many of these people particularly through the Donegal Diaspora project.  This is a very important part of who we are as a county and as a community and we very much appreciate the support of our diaspora and all those who have a special connection with Donegal".

The Donegal Prospectus will be launched today (Wednesday) at 2pm at Oakfield Park, Raphoe.
