History

Donegal was occupied by man more than 9,000 years ago and is famous for its history and its archaeology. There is much evidence of pre-Christian farmers from the numerous tombs across the county.

Christianity had a major influence in Donegal and much of the first Christian monuments can be seen today, such as religious churches and sites commemorating Saint Colmcille, the Donegal man who converted Scotland to Christianity.

In the south, Lough Derg is a famous site of pilgrimage while the town of Donegal has a Franciscan monastery dating from the 17th century.
