Donegal tourism to be hit hard by pandemic aftermath

Tourism in Donegal and other rural areas is likely to take longer to recover from the coronavirus pandemic than in urban places.

A report by EY Ireland says a larger amount of jobs are directly dependent on tourism in rural locations, such as 13 per cent in Donegal and 18 per cent in Kerry.

Simon McAllister, from EY, says a fear about travelling after restrictions are lifted will impact the tourism market for a long time.
