Donegal Tuesday

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Donegal Tuesday is an unofficial student event observed in Galway city.[1] It originated in the 2010's,[2] with NUIG and GMIT students, during unofficial rag week,[3] wearing Donegal GAA sports jerseys, skipping lectures and going drinking - principally in The Hole in the Wall pub in the city.[4] Beginning as an event aimed at students from County Donegal, "to celebrate Daniel O'Donnell, Football Special, Jim McGuinness and all things from the hills",[5] the event has grown to involve all-comers, and achieved cult status.[6][7][8][9][10] An article on Today FM's website in 2018 described the event as "the biggest day of the year" for students in Galway.[11]
