BECOMING DRIER AND WARMER AT THE END OF THIS WEEK - DONEGAL INTERNATIONAL RALLY, SEA SESSIONS & ULSTER FINAL OUTLOOK
This weekend is a busy one in Donegal with a number of events taken places and with people due to flood in from all over Ireland and abroad one of the most important things is will the weather be on the good side.
This weekend the Donegal international Rally takes places in Donegal and dry weather is always important for a good weekend of road racing. Thousands will head to the northwest this weekend to watch the rally and to enjoy themselves. Anyone taken to the roads over the weekend please do drive with care and never drink and drive.
This weekend in the Seaside town of Bundoran the annual Sea Session festival takes places with many thousands heading to the beautiful sea side town to catch a glimpse of some of what Bundoran as to offer this weekend. As always dry weather always make a festival even better but what tops it of is sunshine.
And not forgetting the mighty Donegal GAA who go to clones Co. Monaghan this weekend to take on Cavan on Sunday with throw in at 2pm, Donegal will be going for a two in a row after a impressive win over Tyrone in the semi final. Cavan though will be no push overs where they had a impressive win over Armagh also in there semi final. As a Donegal man I hope the Anglo Celt cup heads back to the hill.
