Donegal Live is a CELEBRATION of all things Donegal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Donegal will take over the centre of Glasgow for a day on Sunday May 1st when Donegal Live moves into Merchants Square and Bell St in the city centre for the afternoon and the Royal Concert Hall from 7.30pm.
The people of Glasgow and the surrounding area will be treated to a whole afternoon of free entertainment from 12noon until 6pm in Merchant’s Square. The adj...oining Bell Street will be taken over with the Donegal Live Showcase, where it is expected that fourteen sectors from the leisure and tourist industries in the County will showcase all that Donegal has to offer its visitors.
The day will be a family day out with a carnival atmosphere. The Mullaghduff Band will lead the street entertainment, which will also include clowns, face painting, magicians and more.
The Ardara Set Dancing Group will set the ball rolling in Merchants Square with a mid-day Ceili, with music provided by St. Rochs CCE.
