County Donegal on the Net

Erins Web 
Erin's Web-Gaelic now has a new forum that we invite (and ask!) everyone to post on.  It is located at: Erin's Web-Gaelic Forum . 

If we could move over to the new forum it would make everything a lot easier in keeping your posts organized under one "roof."  I will, for a short time, move posts from the old board over to the new, but I won't be able to do that for a long period of time.  I appreciate everyone's participation and involvement in the Irish Gaelic language! 

Heritage Island 
The Heritage Island website brings together over 80 of Ireland's Visitor Attractions and Heritage Towns.

Our centres range from ancient abbeys, medieval castles and historic houses to museums, interpretative centres, gardens and folk parks.

Each one has a different story to tell, or takes a new look at old traditions. Some reflect the glories of Ireland long ago, others portray the history and culture of our own time � all are entertaining, informative and fun to visit.

Also included are interesting itineraries which we hope will help you plan your Ireland visit, as well as news of what's on and special events during 2005.

Take the time to browse our website, and let Heritage Island be your guide to a rich and fulfilling experience of Ireland's heritage, old and new.
