Taylor has often talked about Donegal, I can recall reading an article where he'd said he'd far rather have taken Donegal in Partition and left parts of Tyrone and Armagh to the Free State.

sounds fair enough, or just take donegal  inishown anyway they're not sure what country they are in up there

Yeah, what he means is that he would have liked the proddy bits of Donegal (and North Monaghan) and not South Armagh and West Tyrone areas overrun with Fenians

How often do you hear of people visiting Ireland and doing the circuit from Dublin to Kerry to Galway and back? The government has traditionally done little to promote Donegal as a tourist destination, whether it’s through simple access issues via road/rail or advertising or whatever. We’re slightly trendy now due to attention from international off-the-beaten-track-type hype and Star Wars, but how long will that last? Even during the height of the Celtic Tiger, unemployment was still high there. The border fucked Donegal for decades.

Don't ruin it. Donegal is one the best places in the country for a weekend away.

Once you get past Cliffony on the N15 you may as well be entering another world. It's as unique a landscape as anything in the Burren or the King of Kerry but with far less Disneyification of everything else.

Where were the main centres of Protestantism in Donegal pre-partition?

Knew a lad from Lifford of the Protestant variety, farming stock which was no surprise. Sound lad.

Yep. Overlay land suitability for hill walking/sheep farming versus dairy and even arable farming and the point is driven home.

Is he the guy that was shot in the head a number of times and didn't die? Only one explanation for that.

Raphoe still is - the Strabane Weekly is the "other" paper and covers that part of Donegal.
Off to Fundoran tomorrow (like half of Tyrone I'd say) and looking fwd to a few nights in the Great Northern!

Mr Taylor doing some serious backtracking on Twitter. A ridiculous thing to say in fairness, his excuse is pretty lame too.
