Donations can also be given on the day towards the fund.

Gaoth Dobhair Chamber of Commerce is encouraging local businesses and organisations to host fundraising initiatives for the Inishowen Flood Relief Fund.

In excess of 77 millimetres of rainfall was recorded in a seven-hour period at Malin Head last month and left a trail of destruction and devastation across the Inishowen peninsula.

150 houses and 50 businesses were said to be affected, people have been left homeless and Inishowen’s road network was brought to a standstill with a repair bill set to top €15million.
