Market Square, Letterkenny- A Space for People

An Architectural Design Competition to re-imagine our Public Space


Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Donegal County Council launched a competition for the re-imagining of the public space at Market Square, Letterkenny on 27th July 2020.



Since the closing date, the schedule for evaluation, short listing and public consultation on shortlisted submissions has unfortunately been delayed due to the continuing Covid-19 restrictions. The evaluation process is however currently underway and will be completed as soon as possible leading to a public consultation in relation to the shortlisted submissions.  Letterkenny Chamber and Donegal County Council would like to thank all participants for their patience.


The competition invited concept design proposals for Market Square, Letterkenny, that embrace architecture and design in creating great places that people want to experience and spend time in. The concept design proposals invited were to imagine how Market Square can be a central public space that conveys and communicates the DNA of Letterkenny and its people and fully meets the needs for useable public and civic space in the heart of the town centre.


The prize in relation to the winning design is €8,000.  The design brief can be viewed at the following link:
