Ireland Self-Catering / Vacation Rental Accommodation - Co. Donegal
|County Donegal is one of
the traditional counties of Ireland. It is located within the Province
of Ulster and is part of the Republic of Ireland. It was named after the
town of Donegal.
Throughout its history, it has sometimes
been referred to as County Tirconaill or County Tyrconnell. The former
was used as its official name during 1922–1927. This is in reference to
both the old original Tír Chonaill kingdom and the Tyrconnell earldom
that succeeded it.
Uniquely, County Donegal shares a
border with only one other county in the Republic of Ireland, County Leitrim.
The majority of its land border is shared with Northern Ireland (the counties
of Londonderry, Tyrone and Fermanagh). This apparent economic isolation
has led to Donegal people maintaining a distinct cultural identity and
has been used to market the county with the slogan Up here it's different.
|Much of the county is
seen as being a bastion of Gaelic culture and the Irish language holding
the second-largest Gaeltacht area in the country with a population of 24,504.
Despite Lifford being the County Town, the largest town is Letterkenny.
