    Doug, fabulous little page about this lovely corner of Ireland. Unfortunately, although I visited Ireland twice, I never made it to Donegal.

    Doug, thanks for the great tips and photos on Donegal! I hope to get there sometime, and I will check out Dom Breslin's Pier 7 when I do. Best from New Jersey, Bill
