Launching the Monty Halls Family Adventure Campaign in Donegal

'Donegal is a county on the veranda of Europe – where else can you stand with your heels on the edge of a mighty continent, and your toes in the edge of a mighty ocean?' 

Monty Hall’s sentiments clearly put County Donegal on the map and the launch of the Monty Halls family adventures in Donegal film series online, it is expected that Donegal will firmly take its rightful place amongst some of the most famous adventure destinations around the world.

Donegal has a magical effect on people; it draws them in and binds them together. People never forget their visit here. People who leave long to return. There is a genuine love for the place, some people visit and return later, some visit and never leave. It is easy to see within these films why Donegal is so appealing as a family friendly destination.

Monty Halls, his wife Tamsyn and daughters Molly and Isla have been travelling all over the county filming with their company Seadog Productions for almost a month. Donegal County Council’s, Tourism Unit initiated this marketing campaign and the goal is to promote Donegal as an adventure destination with experiences to suit all the family. Landrover and Brig rib boats are also co-sponsors.

The campaign would not have been possible without the help and support from local businesses across the county, too many to list individually but without them this campaign would not happen.

Monty is well known for his BBC2 series ‘Great Escapes’ and he also presented the multi-award winning series ‘Great Barrier Reef’. Monty has also worked with Channel 4, National Geographic, the History Channel, Channel 5, and the BBC. His most recent work is on WWII's Great Escapes: The Freedom Trails. 

The films are emotive and they connect the viewer with the very heart of Donegal and all that it means to feel connected to the people and places, they bond the viewer to Donegal in a really unique way that has special meaning. There is no doubt that these films will reach and inspire many people around the world.
