Taking Care of our Physical and Mental Wellbeing in Donegal.

COVID-19 is a major public health emergency here in Ireland and around the world and is having a big impact on our lives. Everyone has made a huge effort to stop the spread of the virus and to save lives. Thank You!

To help us all get through this difficult time, it’s important that we take care of everyone in our community – and also look after our own physical and mental wellbeing.

That’s why Nati onal & local Government as well as our voluntary and community sectors have been working together on a wide range of wellbeing initiatives to help you in three ways:


To help you look aft er your mental wellbeing
With day-to-day coping advice from Healthy Ireland, lots of creative things to do like gardening, cooking, play for children, special supports for young people and their parents, and lots more.


To help you stay active
With in-home exercise ideas from sporting organisations and athletes, healthy eating advice and guidance on how to enjoy the outdoors.


To help you stay connected
With online libraries, cultural tours, galleries and book clubs, tips on helping in your own community, online workshops and online supports for learners of all ages to help us stay connected.
