The county gets its name from the county seat of Donegal which translates to the stronghold of the foreigners. The Donegal was officially known as the County of Tirconaill or Tyrconnell after the political unit of Tír Chonaill. The county served as the seat for mighty O’Donnell Dynasty who was the most feared ruling clan in the province of Ulster. The county of Donegal became a shire in 1586 and was one of the worst affected regions in Ulster during the Great Famine. The county is known as Forgotten County and is difficult to access, isolated physical and politically resulting in richness and advance of Irish culture and language.
