Donegal In Song

Donegal is a county in the Republic of Ireland, and is located in the province of Ulster. It only borders one other county in Ireland and that is Co. Leitrim. Its southern and eastern borders consist of 3 counties of Northern Ireland: Londonderry, Tyrone and Fermanagh.

Donegal’s climate is strongly regulated by the Gulf Stream of the Atlantic Ocean which forms its northern border. The rugged Atlantic coastline forms many loughs; two of the largest are the Loughs Swilly and Foyle.

Donegal is an amazing county and has many songs written about it. Some of these songs include:

Note: eNotes is a great source of Irish Ballads if you need more.
